Chuck, a wonderful thing youre doing.

Johnny, hope you're doing well after your surgery.
Loved the Sons of the Pioneers for many years without knowing the names of the men involved. However without knowing the men, it was obvious that the people in the group cared a lot about the music to be able to come up with the sound each and every time. Thanks for all the memories, Johnny! Keep well.

The "Sons" were, ahem, a wee bit before my time. *BG* I still enjoy their product. I believe that the marvelous harmonies they showcased were a formative influence on many of the folk revival groups that came along after them. They certainly influenced my own notions of what great music is like. If I can borrow somebody else's line - "Thanks for the Memories."

Johnny V -- you played a great role in American music. I'm lifting a glass of Cool Water in toast to you.

I met a parishioner of my husband's who had just had a similar surgery for similar reasons. I can't say I know just what you're going through but I can say I KNOW it isn't easy. Rest well, let people help, be a pain in the ass when it's called for, and rest deeply in our prayers and thoughts.
