This is my middle son, D'Angelo's birthday!He is a wonderful son, Father to my grandson and husband to my daughter in law Lori.
He is also an accomplished drummer. He was in the drum corp right after high school and has a natural talent. Along with his daily employment as the Manager of an electrical company in Anaheim, CA has been the drummer for his band called "New Roll Soul" for a number of years now.
A few years ago he had that horrible flesh eating disease on the top of his foot developing from a bug bite. He recovered from the initial devastation of that but a few years later it came back.
This disease causes loss of muscle and he recently has experienced problems with the control of his foot. He is having problems with drumming because of this and a drummer needs both feet to be able to play correctly. He is a perfectionist when it comes to drumming which is why he is so good. We are hopeful that physical therapy will help but with the loss of muscle it is going to be hard. Training his other foot has been suggested also.
Drumming is a big part of his life and so I am asking for a prayer chain to pray that the Lord will wrap his loving arms around D'Angelo and guide him in what he needs to do to correct this problem .
My husband and I are so very proud of what he has made of his life through all the hard knocks and want to wish him a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY SON!
