Merl Saunders, Rick Wright, Martin Fierro, Odetta...

Hi Merl. You were one of the nicest people I ever knew.
Rick Wright: There can never be another Pink FLoyd SHow.
Martin, thanks for so many great shows!
Odetta. Where would we all be with out your music.

My Dad, champion Clogging dancer. I had to trick you into liking acoustic Grateful Dead. You introduced me to the Osborne Brothers. You died on the Autumnal Equinox. The sun was shining and it was a really nice day. I was walking your great grandson Connor Erasmus when I heard the news. Sorry, I hurt myself that night trying to cope, but I walked it off into the cold morning. I read the last lines of "Box of Rain" at your service. I will survive.

Hal Kant

I was very sad to find out that Hal Kant passed away back in October. He did so much for the boys. His business management skills afforded the band the freedom to focus on the music. Even more importantly, he had integrity and was a very fair and decent man. Something you don't see very often in the music business. RIP Hal. Thanks for taking such good care of the Grateful Dead.

I guess it doesn't really matter...anyway...

Dennis Dayrit

A real head that had the music in his heart. His first show at RFK in '90, he ended up on the stage form the crowd standing right next to Jer for a few before being kindly led offstage. That was some first show. A keyboardist and true friend that was full-on in whatever he endeavored, Dennis is missed very much. Peace-out, brrrooo.

Warm thoughts

My thoughts are with you here. These are beautiful souls who have blessed the lives around them as is shown in the memories that remain. The folks whose lives these wonderful souls touched will be forever richer.
There is something very magical and special about all here, they bring out the best in humanity. Love is alive and well here.
What a wonderful world.
peace, love and hope, pk

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
