Subject: RE: Obit: Bill Morrissey 1951-2011
Here's a nice ending quote from the Boston Obit:
Mr. Morrissey's legion of fans and friends would find it poetic justice if he were now enjoying the fruits of the afterlife, as described in his song "Letter from Heaven,'' from his album "Night Train'' (1993).
"And me, I couldn't be happier. The service here is fine. They've got dinner ready at half-past nine. And I'm going steady with Patsy Cline. And just last night in a bar room, I bought Robert Johnson a beer. Yeah, I know, everybody's always surprised to find him here.''
