Patti Smith, who's something of a legend herself, posted this last year, and I think it's one of the most amazing things ever written on Jer:

Jerrys bday

Colorado's back and wants to know, What are YOU doing for Jerrys birthday? August 1st isn't far off and I'm curious what other Jerheads do to honor his memory. Drop a line if you like and let me know. As for me, I will have at least a candle burning somwhere for Jerry.

Longer Sounds

Didn't Jerry say something like he switched to electric to "hear the sounds longer"...or something to that effect...pretty cool. Great subject.
I cut my ears on the Travis Bean. I always thought it was "Beam"...
Oh well...listen and learn. I guess I was sort of looking forward to the strat 'cuz that was what I mostly liked from the Europoe '72 songs.
I quickly adapted to the sound of the "Bean" and still very much like the
"high-tension-rubber-wire-sounds" 'specially on those Dancin' jams.
Resistance to change is natural. As Wolfy appeared I was a little sad.
What happened to that hot white guitar. ( did it have an aluminum neck or something like that??) Then, the new dimensions became clearer and again, the sounds became longer and fuller and furthur and furthur.

Heavy...

He used a strap made of bungee that made it feel half as Heavy.

Favorite flavor ! . !

Tiger is my fav for its looks, color and inlay but it was Heavy. I dont know how he wore it night after night, I could never do it. I am way too weak.
That being said I also think Wolf is stunning looking. And I got to echo the Strat is not what I think of with Jerry in mind. Strats are for SRV and Jimi, right. But i love the tone and playability Jerry brought with a strat in his hands. Europe 72 says it all.

2 and a half weeks

Until the anniversary of his birthday. What're we gonna do? A moment of universal web silence? All send him our best wishes at one time?
