Can't access the link without a FB account (which I don't "do"), but I echo your sentiment.

I've got a brown 2x12 combo cab built by Larry. It's very nice.

Well it's a closed group, only members (which I am not) can view, so I get the content unavailable message as well.

This is his post from 10 days ago. I danced with the cancer demon too, but got lucky. RIP Mr. Rodgers.... :(

Dr,s started chemo today and my new residence for the next 6 weeks will Naples Community Hospital. I have advanced leukemia or bone marrow cancer. They will try the chemo and if my old body can handle it and it puts this mess in remission then I will not have to have a bone marrow transplant.Looking at 6 months for the whole process. Need the prayers so keep me in mind !

The ability to play/make music is a gift that not everyone gets. Those of us who have it should use it.

Asimov:Individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinder critics and philosophers of today — but the core of science fiction, its essence, the concept around which it revolves, has become crucial to our salvation if we are to be saved at all.

Crap :( . Man I thought they had leukemia figured out these days.
How can you tell the difference between a chemist and a plumber? Ask them to pronounce 'unionized'.

He was misdiagnosed first so it went too far.

Misdiagnosed? Dammm, and he was right near one of the best cancer clinics on the planet ... Moffitt in Tampa.

Very sorry to hear about Larry. He supplied me with back panels, baffles and restored a Tweed Bassman cabinet for me over the years. Very disturbing how sudden it was.
