having just returned to this site after a long absence, its ironic that i should first come across
this page.....on Sept 14 2008 I lost my friend, lover partner my everything, my wife of 30+years.
We traveled to many shows together and separately over the last 40 years. if any of my old friends are out there... who i have not been in touch with for all these years, this is probably where we would meet again. (Buzzy, in Fl. Georgy P in Brooklyn), We lost Sue, I hope we will all meet again soon.

Similar to Frank, above, Dave, 36, passed away last week, leaving 3 kids and a wife, He was an adventurous fun-loving guy that went to KU and enjoyed the Grateful Dead. Say a prayer or two for his family and friends.

He Was A Friend of Mine

I just lost a friend named Frank at 45. So young with a lot of life left to live ahead of him. Three kids and his his loving wife He won't be there for the "firsts" I noticed at his wake last night the out pouring of love and comfort shown to this man and his family I was told that he had a line at the funeral home from 4:00 to 9:00 I was one of many who standed in the line I waited for an hour and 15 minutes before I could even pay my respects to his wife, kids, brothers, sister and parents.

There are not too many people out there when you meet for the first time to hit it off Frank was one of those people who would engage in conversation with any stranger and then would become his friend I am one of those people I am going to miss Frank and all of our little conversations while hanging out watching our friends band play I guess I will see you when I meet up with you in paradise in the meantime please have a cold one ready for me

albion meeting

my friend lee is a certified dead much so, that i can't follow..he would be what i would concider a true fan..he's met different bandmembers and tells stories about his many experiances on the west coast in the 70's and of course living on the street, riding the rails etc.he talks of an evening in sf offering gerry pizza while shitfaced and making a fool of himself..even in his foolishness he says gerry showed him respect....these days he suffer's from cancer but i have to say he is still allways ingulfed in a dead book or playing his dead music on his guitar or stereo..he seems to be passing us to the bittersweet end but whats sad is his history goes with him..i'm telling my version to keep a little alive...i broke confidence and told him about a time i had with gratefull dead bill..i was speaking at a meeting bill and i had gone to together...i had told him that bill was a genuine good guy and his face lit up as if he allready seems that being a dead head is a piece of a historical puzzle ..i can take a piece if i need it and you can put it back...either way for people like lee it will allways be...thanks..

Some warm thoughts for our

Some warm thoughts for our dear friend Oroboros, whose Uncle Bus recently passed away.
Sounds like a wonderful "Old Man". I know he has a hell of a nephew.
May you be forever young.

Blossom Dearie - sweet voiced, excellent pianist - overlooked because of the other extraordinary talent of the time - Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Anita O'Day - she was, however, a one-of-a-kind. Her "Someone To Watch Over Me" is timeless.
