See in heaven? Doc could see more clearly with the sight in both eyes gone than many people I know with perfect vision. I heard a story about him one time, to the effect that some of Doc's neighbours criticised him for playing with Black musicians. Doc said "Hell, you're all black to me".

There'll be one heck of a session in heaven tonight with Doc and Mississippi John Hurt jamming together like long lost brothers.
