We at BLAM want to offer our deepest condolences to Jimmy Greene & family for the lost of his 6 yr. old daughter Ana (wearing shirt with the star in the pic) in the Connecticut mass shooting. We cried and cried and cried some more yesterday. We know the hurt we feel is pale in comparison to what you are going through. Our prayers are truly with you.
Tenor saxophonist Jimmy Greene, who until recently taught in the University of Manitoba’s jazz program, suffered an unimaginable loss today — his daughter was one of the 20 children killed in the Connecticut school shooting.

Jimmy Greene wrote in response to the prayers and condolences,
“Thank you for all of your prayers and kind words of support. As we work through this nightmare, we’re reminded how much we’re loved and supported on this earth and by our Father in heaven. As much as she’s needed here and missed by her mother, brother and me, Ana beat us all to paradise. I love you sweetie girl.”
