And somewhere in the darkness… the Gambler he broke even, and in his final words I found an ace that I can keep. Thank you for the music Kenny, you really touched my heart.

The Gambler was the first adult song I ever learned to sing as a child. I used to sing it to myself while I was working at my desk in my kindergarten classroom. I had no idea I was singing it out loud until one day my teacher tried to get me to sing it for the other teachers, which was mortifying since I was painfully shy back then. Kenny Rogers has always held a very special place in my heart,  so waking up to the the news of him passing last night in his sleep really hit me. He will truly be missed!!!
