Willie's last message to his friends and fans:

Words From Willie
"... I am unused to being in this position. For much of my life, I have sought to give and although it's a long boring story, I have had much trouble in learning to receive. I am overwhelmed by the gift you have all given to me of your wishes for good health and long life and general well-being. I am also humbled and thankful for your financial support. And so I guess it's now time for me to learn to receive. Life is funny that way. On a more immediate plane, this is just an update to let you know that I believe I am well on the road to recovery, and I am in good spirits and enjoying some new vices such as walking and dreaming of smoking. I still haven't had the major tests that will allow the doctors to let me know exactly what is going on. Much as it goes against my personal grain to take anyone's advice, in this particular case, I think I would be prudent to listen to the doctors and all the fans who advise me to get better first, and then get back out on the road. I've gone on long enough with this communiqué. God bless you all (certainly the god of your choosing), and know that I will see you all in the future."

Sincerely and respectfully,
Peterborough, ON June 29th 2007
