Thread Name: Rick Fielding's passing. (March 20, 2004)
Subject: RE: Rick Fielding's passing.
It's amazing to be so grieved by the loss of someone I never met.
But not really surprising, when I think of it. I 'knew' Rick through his music -- his wonderful voice and craftsmanship and the spirit that shone, and still does, through that music. But I also 'knew' this extraordinary human being, not only though our limited contact at Mudcat but, most importantly, by the way he touched the lives of so many of the rest of you 'catters, like Marion, Amos, Susan, and others.

Rick, I sincerely hoped to meet you in this life. Guess we'll have to save that for the other side.

I can already hear you singing with the angels.
