MAGGIE I NEGLECTED TO MENTION THE MOST MOVING MEMORY FIXED IN MY PEA BRAIN WHEN I SAW THE PHOTO OF JOHN'S GUITAR. IT COMES FROM HIS INCREDIBLE MEMORIAL SERVICE YOU HAD AT CAMP PARSONS, IN SEATTLE. WHAT A TURNOUT I SWEAR HALF OF SEATTLE WAS THERE.

THIS HUGE ROOM HAD CHAIRS LINING ALL FOUR WALLS. AS I LOOKED AROUND AT THE CHAIRS, MY EYES CAME ACROSS ONE EMPTY CHAIR, WITH JUST A GUITAR PLACED UPRIGHT IN IT. MY FIRST THOUGHT WAS: "THAT'S AN OFF WAY TO SAVE A SEAT." THEN IT HIT ME, AS I SAW YOU SIT DOWN BESIDE IT THAT CHAIR WAS RESERVED FOR THE LATE JOHN DWYER.

I HAD TO LEAVE THE ROOM AND GO OUT TO PARLING LOT FOR A BIT. BOB(DECKMAN)NELSON
