    Hi,

    My aunt and uncle live near Atlantic City. They emailed me this, which might help:

    " There was a black woman without arms and legs that was on the Atlantic City boardwalk, that played a small organ with her tongue. I think her name was Ruby, but I am not positive. I think she died a couple of years ago. She supported her kids by playing the organ. There was an arcticle about her in the paper, but I do not remember how long ago that was."

    thank you for the link.... that was very inspirational... i recall in the Bible that Jesus commended this poor lady for giving just a penny but gave her all... and to her husband, kudos to him too, talk about unconditional love...
