Thank you for joining and sharing that with us Ursula. We will all miss your Dad very much in this community... I'm so sorry for your loss. I also lost my Father this year under different circumstances but I know how deeply it hurts. May your memories of your Dad bring you some comfort.


This is something that I read recently that brought me comfort.




Death Is Nothing At All - By Henry Scott-Holland


Death is nothing at all. 
It does not count. 
I have only slipped away into the next room. 
Nothing has happened. 


Everything remains exactly as it was. 
I am I, and you are you, 
and the old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged. 
Whatever we were to each other, that we are still. 


Call me by the old familiar name. 
Speak of me in the easy way which you always used. 
Put no difference into your tone. 
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. 


Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me. 
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was. 
Let it be spoken without an effort, without the ghost of a shadow upon it. 


Life means all that it ever meant. 
It is the same as it ever was. 
There is absolute and unbroken continuity. 
What is this death but a negligible accident? 


Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? 
I am but waiting for you, for an interval, 
somewhere very near, 
just round the corner. 


All is well. 
Nothing is hurt; nothing is lost. 
One brief moment and all will be as it was before. 
How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again!

Hi Todd

Your father and I would talk on skype years ago and since I lived in the Quad Cities (living in Japan here for a long time) we chatted often. I asked your father if he would teach me "Wildwood Flower" , well he hadn't played it in a many days, but after a few minutes he got it down, he was a genius not with the guitar pick, but with a paint brush. I remember he did the raccoons.  When we use to go on skype he would always be truck'n away on a candy lollie pop.  He told me if my memory serves me well, did he have a Harley with the sidecar. I'm quite sure he told me. I know Rockerbob wasn't aware of it because he too was really close to your dad. 

He is missed dearly by all of us old timers here on the forum. His help and his encouragement when a long way with us members here.

I never did get back to the States to visit you dad's shop and do a little jam'n with your dad playing those 2 new guitars he bought in Nashville.

To the above post: should say "not only with the guitar pick, but fingerstyle picking also , and with a paint brush. Maybe with a pencil, not sure since the picture of the raccoons he showed me long ago may have been done in pencil.


sorry for the error in typing the above post
