RIP Lena

RIP Lena.   She and her husband Gary came to almost every show we played in North Alabama.
She went in for a short procedure this week
and went into cardiac arrest.  At the memorial today, many of our musician friends were there.  Lena and Gary were fans, but we musicians saw them as friends,  much more than fans. 
Lena was always smiling.  I just can't believe she is gone.  It is one of those times in our lives when we question why do bad things happen to good people.
I can't imagine what Gary is feeling tonight.  I know he felt the outpouring of love that was given to him today.  I hope he finds comfort in the coming days.
Lena's procedure was one that several friends and family members have undergone.  I will never ever shrug off the what if, what might, of a medical procedure again for anyone I know.
Life can and does change in the blink of an eye.


  1. I'm very sorry for the loss of your friend. One can never be prepared for such a sudden death.

    Hugs, Julia

  2. So sorry to hear about the loss of your friend.

  3. I'm so sorry for the loss of your friend. Those sound like the simple phrases we say at these times but I really understand the sadness from sudden loss. My thoughts are also for her family. Working where I do I see it much too often. Hugs for you tonight.

  4. It's so sad when a friend passes away

  5. I'm so sorry about your friend. We have to try and make every day our best day, because you never know what may happen. I hope the good memories of your friend bring comfort.

  6. Kabtak Chhupa Kar Rakhen Aankhon Me Isey, Ki Aansuon Ka Samandar Ab Sanbhala Nahi Jata.
