A Very Special Wish
2/18/2004

Every now and then someone really special comes into your life and reminds you of how precious your life & dreams are! Tyler had a wish to meet his hero, Carlos Santana, and it came true with a little help from the Make A Wish Foundation. The Make A Wish Foundation grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy.
When we heard of Tyler’s request, we were more than happy to help him fulfill his wish. On February 12, Tyler, his family and a representative from Make A Wish came to the office to meet Carlos and our staff. Tyler, who is an aspiring guitar player, got to hang out with Carlos and get a private lesson from his hero. Tyler & Carlos played guitar together and Tyler played guitar while Carlos played the drums. After the big jam, Tyler and his family had lunch with Carlos & our office staff. Tyler left with a big smile and more Santana merchandise than he could carry. It was a very emotional experience for everyone involved.
