Thread Name: Rick Fielding's passing. (March 20, 2004)
Subject: RE: Rick Fielding's passing.
I just heard this morning. I'm hardly here anymore since I'm living on my own. Thank you, bbc, for the email.
To Heather, my deepest sympathy, I can't find the right words, please remember, the love and compassion always exists for you on Mudcat.
To Rick, I never told you the profound effect you had on me.... your music, your kind words and encouragement on the threads and your playing tips and techniques you shared with me in person. I will fondly remember, for as long as I live, the three concerts of yours I attended, the Hudson Valley Folk Guild, Hyde Park, NY concert you shared with Sandy and Caroline, and the two Branford, CT concerts (and the jam sessions that followed at the Shaw's). I will miss you, but your music will live on in me. A finer gentleman I never knew. May you rest in peace, friend.
