Ten years gone
    #4511339 - 08/08/05 08:03 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

I awoke to the sound of my friend crying. I was in Baltimore on business
and it was around 6:30(I think). As he said "guess who died?" I could
already see the answer in his eyes. We knew he was on the verge of death
for years, but somehow hoped he would continue to survive. We made phone
calls to friends and the airlines and were in San Francisco by afternoon.
As I walked through GG park the sense of sadness was overwhelming. It was alittle to much to bear so we headed to a quieter side of Frisco.
The rest I would just as well not think about.

Just my perspective on Jerry's death. People that don't understand the Dead may think it's weird that so many people loved the man so much. I guess you had to be there. For 30 years he stood on stage playing music so we could experience joy. Night after night putting his soul out front for all see.
The revolution will continue, but there will never be another Jerry Garcia.
For that job the One Love sent it's very best. :heart:

Christians say that "The Lord works in mysterious ways". That couldn't be more
true for the Dead family. Who would have thought that a tiny molecule and a
bunch of kind people playing wonderful music could offer salvation to so many.
Jerry was just a man, but on a good night when we would get the first tingle and whisper that the Love was going to visit it would first become apparent through Jerry's playing. As the music continued we would all dissolve as his fingers moved not by his control, but by the light that connects us all.

My chops are rusty and the words just don't say what I mean so I'll stop.
Let me close by saying that I have a wife and 3 kids who I love more than myself and alot of friends I love dearly, but the Love I have for Jerry Garcia is overpowering.
:heart:Jerry Garcia :heart:

I wish I was around during that time period to be at a live show experiencing the music through those very special eyes we all know here so well. :sun:

That was inappropriate. Whether you enjoyed the mans music or not you should have some respect for a fellow human.

we love you too, hanky! :smile:

jerry wasn't [just] a junkie - his music and life meant so much to so many people (and still does today) - regardless of whether you dug it or not, to deny that fact is silly.
