Matt just told me that one of his good friends and a man I knew and really liked and admired died last night of a massive heart attack. LC Collier was a well-known and well-recognized magician from our area. Not only was he involved in the magic world, he was a motivational speaker, performed as a Kenny Rogers impersonator, and played Santa Claus every year. (www.lccollier.com will give you a visual of this great man.)

We just saw him perform last Saturday night at the annual Stage Magician of the Year banquet, where he was presented the People's Choice Award and the First Runner Up recognition for the contest. He is an amazing magician--sleight of hand, illusion, and fire eating--all with the biggest smile on his face. I have the pleasure of being able to keep the recent memory of talking with him and feeling his hand resting on my shoulder, for he was a toucher.

That was the same night he was inducted as the President of the International Brotherhood of Magicians Ring 129. My husband was so looking forward to working with him because he was a level-headed yet fun-loving man that carried the respect of the club with a careful, yet seemingly effortless love.

Matt is terribly upset. Tonight is the monthly club meeting. They will have the meeting because LC would have wanted it that way. But next month they have to have a broken wand ceremony to recognize the loss of someone very special.

Please, offer kind thoughts and/or prayers (if that is your inclination) to his family and huge network of friends. His wife suffers with MS and is homebound frequently. His loss is strongly felt by hundreds of people and the world is now missing a bright star.

I trust that God will laugh while LC performs Professors Nightmare or sings "Lady" for the ones who are watching over those of us left on Earth.

Why is it that those who are a huge addition to the world are taken from it before we are ready to let them go?
