I'll miss you, but ever be grateful that we had the opportunity to sit down together last fall at a small nightclub in Harrahs Casino State Line, Nevada. You sang that night especially for me and I loved it. It was marvelous to listen to your stories about the people you had met in the long musical journey that brought you to this time and place. I felt reminded of the journeys of my life and grateful that music, especially your music, has been a part of it.
Through the many twists and turns of life we encounter some strange folk and are the better for it. I, Mr. Bridges, am better for the time I have spent in your melodies and lyrics.
Farewell Claude, Leon, Hank, Godspeed on your journey.
