I fel like I owe my love of music to you, and your talent influenced how I perceived and enjoyed al other forms of music. The world won't be the same without you, but millions of people like myself are significantly richer from having been able to experience your muse. Rest in peace....Now I know when my time comes, the band in heaven will really be rocking. I'm sure you and Bill Graham have already found each other.

We sadly realized that an era has passed, and a part of our childhoods (and adult lives) is now over. We'll all miss Jerry terribly. Uncompromising artistry is so rare in the rock music world today. It has just become much rarer. Peace & love. Paul Chumsky

Subject: We love and miss you Jerry Hello. My name is Tim Hong. I've been a Deadhead since I went to my first show in 1989 at the Rosemont Horizon. Since then, I have not gone one day without feeling Jerry's and the Grateful Dead's influence as a major guiding light in my life. Jerry was like a painter on stage. Every time he performed, he created something new -- something beautiful -- something living. I have nothing but happy memmories of Jerry and I will surely miss his presence for the rest of my life. He was such a inspiration to me and I will forever be indebted to his contributions to us. Please accept my most humble and sincerest condolences to Jerry's family and everyone who was touched by his music. We will always love you and miss you, Jerry. God bless you. Peace, Timothy Hong XYGP76B@Prodigy.com

Subject: $0.02 Guys, Girls, Folks, I know you'll recieve a lot of messages, and the volume may say more than the words they contain, but I want to put it on record. I was uptight, and unhappy, and not contributing to anyone, which I justified by trying to do no harm. My best friend, a guy I love as much, and respect more, than my family, turned me on by just playing the music when I was around. I grew into it, then I met the heads, then I caught the bus. I learned the phrases, started to recognize the common symbols, and felt a part of a community that I felt I could grow in. I tried selling stuff, feeling out the ability to "do a tour". I was in Memphis, near the Mississippi river, and got so happy, I ended up giving away the comic books I brought to sell, and had a much better time. I'll miss the chance to watch things go boom like they did at the good shows, and I'll have to find new traditions, but I'm glad I saw what I saw, went where I went, and grew how I grew. Jerry helped me lighten up, remember to say "I love you" more often, and appreciate the journey as much as the destination. I hope you'll be happy again soon. --email@example.com --"Listen to the river sing sweet songs..." --GD-Brokedown Palace

Jerry has touched our lives for many years, have brought many of my friends together. We always smiled and had fun times whenever we traveled to see him play. He will be miseed by all of us who new his words and music. Most of all we are glad he took time in his life to share himself and his music, with his friends. We are his friends forever and shed a tear of sorrow. He will be deeply missed. He does not walk alone, we will be with him again someday. He will always be with us in our lives. A distant friend, Tom

He was a man who accomplished transcendent things, a genius artist and a powerfully loving human being. He and the other members of the band have been in my thoughts daily for 25 years. I am deeply sad and I hope we can find a way to continue, appropriately as a family. My love to Bob, Phil, Micky, Bill, Ramrod. You are wonderful people and you make a very big difference in this world.
