Sad News About Jimmy's Mom

Post by 2fla »

Here's the e-mail from PHiP:

Parrotheads in Paradise Inc. is saddened by the passing of Jimmy Buffett's Mom...

Peetsie passed away at 10pm last night (Thursday).
In lieu of flowers donations can be made to her scholarships, info to follow.

We have all been touched by Jimmy's music and as is with all sons and daughters, they have been touched and influenced by their Moms and Dads... In essance we have all been touched by Peetsie through Jimmy's love of his family and through his music. It is a sad day in the Parrot Head Nation and we are all praying for the Buffett Family...

Sail On Mrs. Buffett . . .

If I had it to do all over again, I'd get myself drunk and I'd jump right back in!

My thoughts and prayers go out to Jimmy and his family.
In this time of need there must be something that us Parrotheads can give back to the man who takes our stress away and brings us to that magical place call Margaritaville either in concert, in our car, or at home.

Thank you Mrs. Buffett for giving us Jimmy and making our dull lives a little bit better.

Sail On Mrs. Buffett

Post by ScottFiesta »

A Tragic day indeed. Does anyone know if she suddenly fell ill or has she been in decline for awhile? Just tryin' to put it in perspective. truly tragic. I think the world knows that she must have been a "One in a million" Mom to have a son like Bubba!

A Truly strange 10 days.

I fall ill and can't do the Vegas show,
Mac Cancels Hollywood (we were opening)
Jimmy's mom falls ill and Jimmy cancels the show
Robert Palmer passes

I second the hope that Jimmy was at her side when she passed.

The Pre- Buffett Party on Saturday at Tia Juana's in Irvine will still go on. Koko Loco will be on hand and The Fiesta Brothers may make a suprise appearance!

The Show Must Go On Jimmy!!!
Live a Lie, and you will live to regret it!

Dear Jimmy, the thoughts and prayers of the ENTIRE Parrothead world are with you and your family. If you need us, we certainly will be there.

It's at times like this that I'm reminded of my favorite line you've written and the sole reason I decided to pick up the guitar and learn to play music. It's my favorite song to play:

"You've got to roll with the punches, play all of your hunches, make the best of whatever comes your way.....Forget that blind ambition, learn to trust your intuition, plowing straight ahead, come what may."

Sail on Mrs. Buffett.

Stay strong Jimmy.

My thoughts and prayers are with Jimmy and his family during this difficult time. Poor guy - what a year! Peetsie - thanks so much for blessing us with such a wonderful musician who makes us forget all our troubles and takes us to that special place.
If we weren't all crazy we would go insane.

Terrible news. They'll be in my prayers.

This life goes by so quickly. We should never miss an opportunity to say "I love you" to those around us because you just don't know when they'll be gone.
