July 26 to August 9
Two weeks I could really live without. Even with Jerry's birth date falling in between, it's not enough to overcome the overwhelming grief I feel that they are no longer with us. But the fact that it's been many, many years since their deaths, and I'm still grieving, only reinforces what these two, and The Grateful Dead as a whole, meant, to me - and still mean to me today.
And when I look back, grief quickly turns to joy, and I smile...and smile...and smile..
Props go out to my homeboy Grateful Don, who shot me an email on the 26th respectfully requesting "I never forget Brent "Cliffhanger" Mydland", who died 22 years ago that same day (now 23)
Donnie - That won't be a problem. How can anyone forget their brother?
