Doris Moody: I remember Lou well.He is totally responsible for my accepting the challenge to play piano.I will always be grateful to him for his persistence in telling me that I could do it. His famous words were always, 'You got the job, Doris.'He would always say that when I would try my best to please him with my playing.
I remember Anna and Lou's wedding so vividly.I was pregnant with Jonathan at the time and they were worried that he would be delivered and interrupt their accompanist's ability to play for their wedding.It was such a sweet ceremony.He sang an original song to Anna at their wedding (right after they took their vows).It was called 'I'll Take Care of Your Cares'. Very sweet.That Lou; he was indeed a charmer.
