Ms. Case, I am the mother of one of your biggest fans Katherine Burcham. Before she could drive she had her Dad driving her all over the east coast to see you every time she could. She had tickets for you 3 closes concert to Fredericksburg but was not able to come because she decided her life was not worth living. Please, I am begging you if possible, to try and make contact with her. She was always in the front row because she is short and she wanted to make sure she could see you. She is the short Asian that we adopted from South Korea. I am grabbing at straws to try and make her see she has a lot to live for. Thank you for your time. Sylvia
