MAGGIE ( MY APOLOGIES FOR THE BIG LETTERS, BUT I DON'T SEE WELL ANYMORE) . VIEWING THE PICTURES OF JOHN'S GUITAR AND SONG LIST BRINGS BACK A FLOOD OF MEMORIES. I WELL REMEMBER THE FIRST TIME HE SHOWED ME THE "FIRST EDITION" OF THOSE LISTS. IT WAS A WARM DAY, AT HIS BEACH FRONT HOME AT MISSION BEACH, WHERE I HAVE SPENT SO MANY HUNDREDS OF HOURS SINGING AND SHARING SONGS WITH JOHN AND SO MANY, MANY FRIENDS.

WHEN I FIRST SAW THE SNGS LISTED AND TAPED TO THE BACK OF HIS GUITAR, I SUGGESTED THAT HE ADD MORE SHEETS OF PAPER, IN LAYERS, LIKE A BOOK. TYPICAL OF HIS PUNNY HUMOR, HE REPLIED; "i'LL LEAF THAT ALONE!"   CHEERS, BOB (DECKMAN) NELSON
