Hello Country Music fans!
It is with much heartache I write this letter informing you that last weekend we lost a very, very dear friend and lover of traditional Country Music!
Nancy and I go way back to my very first performance of Country Music, when I entered and won my first of many talent contests hosted by the late and great legendary, Hal Lone Pine. That was in 1962 (56 years ago) and she and my Aunt Fran were in the front row cheering me on.
Nancy was a big collector of traditional Country Music and loved Don Williams and Maine legend Ira Allen.
Thank the Lord she was able to get out this past December and listen to the trio at the Tan Turtle and she enjoyed it immensely. Susan, thank you for being there and taking Nancy to my shows and safely returning her to the nursing home after the show, she appreciated it greatly!
Susan and I also got to visit her there in the nursing home and I took my guitar each time to sing to her and she loved it.
I thank GOD for her unyielding friendship and the countless laughs we had going up and down the highway reminiscing and always trying out new restaurants along the way.
Nancy, I know there will always be that void that can never be replaced, but I know you are riding with me every day.
May you now know the peace that GOD has promised us and until we meet again,
THANKS FOR KEEPING IT COUNTRY!!
