    In memory of my brother Neil E Pirch, his "Bro's" took him to Stagecoach. His last wish was to attend Stagecoach 2012 but sadly did not make it. His favorite performer was Kenny Chesney. Mr, Chesney, so many of your songs touched Neil and related to his life. We will be holding a Wake for Neil in May and I will have a pix of you there for Neil. RIP my little brother for you no longer suffer.
