    To All My Friends!! I may not weep because memories don't sleep. I'm grateful Doc and I spoke so often. I'm sorry I gave him grief for not scoring Dead tickets for the opener in N.C. when it would have prompted a visit. I told him last week that I would call with the review. The first night in Worcester was a gut check with our good buddy Jive and Scotty0 and Clouts. We looked inside and still got a way to go. The next night with beaucher and Don up front. Mike and I will prevail upon the crew to visit our spot in Crawford Notch. I wonder if we can still see Mt. Washington from that twist in the stream. Just for the record, I pronounced the Knocking on Heaven's Door the best ever Friday night. Last night I went to Hartford with Stacey and Adam and Tahlia and Jean Philip,remembering when we met Coco there and I touched her waist and had visions of Tahlia and JP during Ship of Fools. I heard you singing along during The Weight and imagined you floating downstream in Tomorrow Never Knows. Sure I cried a little when the All of my friends started Black Peter while I was wishing you could see your kids dancing, too. Maybe you can. Sam and Eli- I really look forward to seeing you again. I love you Julie. Folks, on behalf of the Larose family, sincere condolences. Now Doc, reserve me a table for three. For you and me and all our friends.
