"Lee Man" Furgerson of Des Moines
There was a wonderful article in yesterday's Des Moines Register by Reid Forgrave about a very special person -- Lee Furgerson. (Lee is the nephew of Vince Thomas of Rock Island.) Lee was born with mental and developmental disabilities but a talent for music. He is now receiving praise and admiration for his musical performances and his work teaching percussion to children. Read the article.
