You did all the things my dad couldn't I wish we could have jammed one more time. I have listened to Alice's restaurant every Thanksgiving because of you. If you hadn't pointed me in the folk direction I would have never got into Pete Seeger and Arlo Guthrie. Thank you for passing on your wisdom and taste in music. I will never forget playing The Rolling Stones for hours or Nintendo. Peace Bob. May you do some living now you wild, wild horse.
