our beautiful girl would have been 19 today...her given name was amy lynn, but one of my nephews, when he first met her, couldn't pronounce all that and so he called her mimi... so i do too... she wasn't my daughter, but she was, in some ways, mine... she trusted me and she loved me back... that counts for something...
her dad is holding up better than i am on this day-- i love birthdays and all the hoopla associated... i wish we could be making this a special day for her. instead we've taken fresh flowers (pansies for this time of year-- and we decided to take home the christmas tree we've had out there since thanksgiving!!!), and scott is going to have a private lunch at her gravesite, and her friends are taking balloons & cake to her... i'll go see her later. just me...
i miss my darling girl...
with all the tour excitement going on ...I am really wishing she was here with me!
I miss you Patty every minute of everyday!
Peace & Love
May the clear light inside guide you on your journey home;)
This is for my old roadie Bubba. He passed away when I was oversees. He was a prankster with Real family Values. His smile and laugh will never be forgotten. Thanks Bubba, for helping me face my fears.
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.
Pigpen was gone from our lives. Fortunately, his recordings live on for us to enjoy.......xoxxo Gypsy Cowgirl
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...
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.
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
it's really raining down on you guys. I'm so sorry.
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.
