Thanks Tom for commenting on my brothers blog. I remember you too. As a matter of fact, Gene was Ace, Rich was Mace, and I was Little Mace. Ha! He's with Janice Joplin now!

I'm so glad to see this, I had forgotten it was here in the wash of grief after he left us. Yesterday was Janis Joplin's birthday and I figured Hydro must be dancing with her in the next life... at least that is my wish for him. His family has honored him in wonderful ways. I'm proud to know them.

My friend, It's been a couple of years now, I thought the pain would diminish, it hasn't! I miss you every day! I hope Janis is there singing to you. I love you my friend.

It's the same for me sweetheart. Was just talking about you and my trip to see you to some people here at the hotel tonight. I wish I could just hold you again. Love your sissy, Sheere
