Hank Garland has passed two weeks prior to Filming "Crazy" but Hank was very close to everyone involved and was very aware of his life story being brought to Life. Hank Garland also was able to tell his own side of the story as his mind was restored after an amazing come back from a stay in a local hospital for surgery. The Doctors said it was a Miracle. As for Steve Vai, Rick Bieber, Al Cohen, Joel McDonnel, Ray Scherr, and those that came to visit Hank it was a great way to finally hear his take on everything that happend becuase it was his life story. God has been very good to us. I am so thankful for everyone involved with the film "Crazy".
