    One of my favorite concert memories didn’t involve actually attending a concert. Vern was in SHARE2 and I was working for SHARE when Safehaven was at the old INS building, near Qwest (now CenturyLink) Field, and the Rolling Stones came to town to play that stadium. Vern and I stood together outside the shelter until it was time to lock the gates, listening to the music. The honest ruth is that we couldn’t hear all that well, but I stayed anyway because I was having such a good time watching Vern have such a good time. He was like a man transported, he was enjoying himself so much. It was a joy to watch, and to hear him talk of memories of other Stones concerts he had attended.
