looking for Antonio

Probably a long shot in the dark :) I'm looking for a guy named Antonio from California who went to shows in the late 80s early 90s. We lost touch and I have always wondered what happened to you. We hung out a few times in Northern and Southern Cal, last few times in San Diego.
If you ever find this drop me a line. I think you might remember me as bouncy. :D

Hi Sarah,I have just been contacted by one of my old friends from Dead Tour.You have been talking with him,Larry,about finding your father,Windancer.I could only find this posting from you as he did not give me your current connection?Hopefully you will get this?My husband and I are very close to your father.His real name is Jonathan Timmer,yes,AKA,Windancer,when we were on tour.Your father was a unique/essentric individual.He has had some rough times in his life....which is why we have stayed friends,and been close,to support and help him.I guess you know now he has found out you are looking for him.....and it has affected him deeply.He definitely would like to connect...You are the only blood relative he knows of,as he was adopted out as a small child,born to traveling gypsies,who could not raise him.He went through Vietnam,which affected him greatly.He joined the Dead family as a sense of community,and we were all a tight knit community....if you have not received the info for him yet please respond and we can connect you with him,My name is Lesly,hope we connect?

Caroline & Jason

I am sure some of you might have heard of the unidentified decedent "Jason Doe". He supposedly attended the Grateful Dead summer 1995 concerts on june 24 and june 25 of. He died in a car crash june 26 and has never been identified.
So please take a moment to look at the information by googling "Jason doe" and if you knew a Caroline O. or a Caroline T. or a Jason maybe you have some information that might help bring him home.
Since I am uncertain of the site policies about links in comments I hope you will be willing to do a Google search yourself if you know someone or something relevant.
I apologize if this has already been discussed on the forums but I feel like someone here might be able to help.

Thank you!
