Nice Story: Homeless Man With Great Voice Given Job, Home

FROM MSNBC:  An Internet video of a homeless man showing off his self-described “God-given gift of a great voice” has landed him a spot on a local radio show, a dream job with the Cleveland Cavaliers and a house.
“The Cleveland Cavaliers just offered me a full-time job and a house! A house! A house!” Ted Williams said while appearing on a morning radio show in Columbus, Ohio, called “ Dave and Jimmy.”
Williams was offered the job and free home by a caller to the show who said she represented the Cavaliers, the New York Post reported.
Williams was flying to New York Wednesday night for a reunion with his 92-year-old mother, who lives in Bedford-Stuyvesant, and an appearance on the "TODAY Show," NBC confirmed. Earlier, the website TMZ reported that airport officials would not let him board a plane because he didn't have proper ID.
A reporter from the Columbus Dispatch came across Williams while he was panhandling near Interstate 71 recently. A sign he carried explained that he was a former radio announcer who had fallen on hard times.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
