It's been quite a summer ...

Jimmy - your music helped me maintain my insanity when I lost DH. I'm sending prayers and a lullaby from my heart to comfort you and your family as you deal with too many losses.

As I sat and watched Jimmy Tuesday night in San Diego, and marveled at his charmed life, I really looked forward to finishing my 7 show tour this year at Irvine.

As the news came out yesterday, the illness, then rumor of his mom's death, then the confirmation, once again you realize all of us have the same comedies and tragedies.

Yes, Parrotheads will not fret over lost Ebay money, lost time on airplanes for those flying in, or other losses.

Jimmy, very mortal, is very well loved by his phlock....and everyone is feeling something, yet no one is going thru what he and his family is feeling.

Our sympathy goes out to Jimmy and his family.

Ohhh, these moments we're left with
May you always remember
These moments are shared by few
And those harbor lights, lord, they're coming into view
We'll bid our farewells much too soon
So drink it up, this one's for you

My favorite lyrics that meant so much more to me after losing my Daddy.....
I hope they give the Buffett family strength when they need it most.

Oh man, I just read through all of this for the first time. How sad, and how humanizing. We can all feel for him, we're all touched by the passing of parents.

Jimmy's Mom and Dad are now together, free of the pain they had to endure during their last days. Thank goodness Jimmy has Jane and his kids. Thank goodness he has us, and we have him.

Deepest sympathy to the Buffett family from someone who lost both parents at an early age. The pain subsides, but the memories persist. God speed to your mother and a sheltered harbour for you and yours.
