Subject: I share your grief Jerry brought me so much happiness and emotion for the last twenty years. I've been moved to tears of joy countless times just by listening to him play. In some of my darkest times, he brought me peace and then helped me find the light of living again. May you, his family, be comforted by knowing how much this wonderful, singular soul reached the souls of many, many others. I shed tears of sorrow with you now. Paul Baumgartel

He touched more lives and brought more joy intothe world than most could ever hope to do. He had his flaws, but they were far outnumbered by his beautiful heart and soul that burst forth into the world and all of our hearts God Bless You All, his family, the band, his friends, Brad A. Barnes

Organization: Agrinfo Subject: Condolences 2 In my sorrow-induced selfishness yesterday, I sent my condolences to the Garcia family, but not to the other members of the band. To the other band members and crew, I'm sorry about the loss of your brother. It must be devastating. My prayers are with you. Micky, Bob, Phil, Bill, Vince-I think that you know Jerry would want you to play on. He was (and is) a genius, but you are all geniuses. You and Jerry took us all to great heights. I haven't seen you since '88 (I'm an aging head), but still always listening...

Subject: The Music Never Stops Every time one of a hundred thousand people wake up in the morning with a riff or lyric phrase ringing in their minds, The Grateful Dead and Garcia will grow more eternally alive. Some people have a unique talent to communicate, others to touch lives through art and music. Jerry Garcia had it all, and we'll have what he gave us forever. I was never a Deadhead, only saw 2 shows, but always knew how special a gift the man possessed. He gave it to us, and we're so much better off for it. Thank You!

Date: Fri, 11 Aug 95 10:27:41 -700 Subject: he's gone My heart is broken, my soul is weeping. This is a devistating blow to all of us in the family of friends who identify so strongly with not only the music of this gentle, beautiful man, but also the ideals that he conveyed. The magnitude of this loss is indescribable, the world is a lesser place without him. I hope that this tragedy serves as a lesson to all of those who continue to abuse their bodies. We have lost too many valuable people this way. The world needs good, kind people like Jerry, we can't afford to lose them in such a senseless way. My thoughts are with you all in this time of terrible saddness- Love & Peace, Raychel

Date: Fri, 11 Aug 95 09:36:35 -2400 I probably attended 25 shows over twenty-one years. Jerry and the band taught this introverted kid how to dance,how go with the flow, and how to revel in joy. I am sad now, but will always be grateful.I never felt as close with my friends as when at a show. Peace.

For this I thank all of you. I only hope that you each have someone to help you through this. Thank you
Date: Fri, 11 Aug 1995 10:36:27 -0400 From: IMEMINE815@aol.com Subject: Jerry As a Grateful Dead fan, I am shocked to see the passing of such a fine talent. His constant improvisations and his warm affectionate attitude to everyone will always be in our hearts. I might not have ever traveled with the Grateful Dead, but I've been to a number of concerts. His music will live on for ever and ever. In my Valicdicdorian speech at my graduation, I incorporated one of Jerry's most famous lines into my speech. With all the chaos that has gone on in my school I just had to end with the infamous "What A LONG Strange Trip It's Been" We will all miss you Jerry. IMEMINE

Organization: University of Kentucky I know my voice will be just one in the thousands of voices of sympathy that will be received, so I send this to you as much for my pain as yours, too. We are all family in this thing called the Grateful Dead and I know my pain at losing Jerry cannot be even close to the pain felt by those of you who knew him and worked with him and lived with him on a daily basis. But please know all of us out here are with you in your pain and are experiencing with all of you our profound grief at our loss. My pain is made even deeper by knowing that I will never again have the experience of going to see the Grateful Dead play. All the feelings and joy and zen that I have felt in the past when I've heard the music play are now just memories to be cherished for a life time. I have only felt saddess this deep in the past when losing my father and brother. I know now I really have thought of the members of the band as a part of my life and my family. With all my love and caring I leave you now with this message. Thanks for all the joy. Melinda
