At times like this, it feels like our sun is setting, our glorious pasts receding to memories, and our futures uncertain. Too many people have died in the last week, including my dear friend Tom Howard in Van Buren, Arkansas, and Patrick Swayze, a celebrity who always seemed like one of us. A real person! God bless them all - they will be missed. May they rest in peace, but have a riotous time in heaven with old friends and new who were waiting for their arrival.
Sadly, now we must add Mary Travers to the list. She was the voice of a generation. How I wanted to be Mary!
