I think of what someone once said of Emerson, that he was "the friend and aider of those who would live in the spirit." It's hard to lose friends like that. I'm sorry for us all. God speed.

Like a leader in the world, he is gone and can never be replaced. He will be sorely missed, and never forgotten. it is incredible the power he had. He was more than a cultural phenomena. He was such a big part of these times that it was like he was a messenger from heaven trying to show the way to a better world. The outpouring of affection is witness to the love there is for him between millions of people who are connected because of his humanity and skills. God love you, Jerry Garcia. Till we meet again!

Date: Fri, 11 Aug 1995 16:57:02 -0700 From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Fred Fisher) Subject: Thank you Jerry The sixties died today, I guess I can finally go home and tell my wife I'm finally an adult. For a man who had so many "highs", he certianly gave them to so many more. "Gone are the Days" that we can look forward to a set of shows that will clear our "mental cobwebs" and give us a much needed dose of a different reality. Whether a fan was still part of the Counter Culture or part of the mainstream of society, we all shared that much needed breeze of fresh air generated by the finest melody lead guitar ever played. Many Deadheads are not throw backs to a lost era, many are working professionals that needed that timeout that only Jerry and the boys could provide. Gone now is the semi-annual vacation I so looked forward to, gone now is my semi-annual reunion with the largest extended family I have. Gone now is a space and time that only could occur with a spatial trip provided by a searing solo guitar sporting a dancing hula girl. We tired to make a differnece in the sixities and maybe we did. Certianly The Grateful Dead did, by proving that success can occur outside the mainstream of a music industry fraught with over produced and thrown together bands, purchased songs, and performers where musicians once thrived. If I have to be an adult now, it's sad to think it will be in a world without a man who gave me and others so much. It's even sadder to realize that we'll never again be in a place where all 16000 perple are smiling To quote another fallen friend (Bill Graham), "it's not that they're the best at what they do, they're just the only ones doing it."

Subject: In Memorian I am not exactly a fan of Grateful Dead, but knew the virtuosism of Jerry Garcia, I saw him in 1989 in LA playing side by side with Carlos Santana, Ruben Blades, and Tito Puente. I was really surprised of his versatility. Since then i started to listen his music. Long Live Jerry Garcia! Sincerely, Cesar Moreno.........a peruvian in USA

He will live on in each of us, whose lives he touched so beautifully. I just want to pass along my deepest sympathies to those who miss him the most... to his family and friends and everyone who knew him well. My love goes out to you tonight, and always.

Subject: Life I heard the Dead on three occasions in England in 1972. I have never forgotten the heights that I reached listening to them in concert. I will remember for as long as I am the icy steel guitar cutting through and tickling my neurones. The band was inspirational. To lose Jerry is a loss to all. May we all live with the memory of Jerry and the values that were intrinsic to his being and beyond. Love
Date: Sat, 12 Aug 1995 00:25:29 -0400 From: KenM315@aol.com Subject: Jerry I loved him, his music, and how he made me feel. There is a feeling that is so unique that I will never forget- and never experience again. You know: when the boys hit the stage- and the lights are still out- but the crowd knows. It spreads. Its electric- it made the hairs on the back of my neck dance. It was anticipation, it was great to see you again, it was wondering what tonight would be like. It was magic. Jerry did things on the guitar that I never heard anyone do. His music did something to me. I will miss him. I will always carry him and that feeling he gave me. My deepest feelings to those around him and all he touched. Goodbye Jerry.

Date: Sat, 12 Aug 1995 00:28:16 -0500 Personal_Name: Kevin Larsen From: email@example.com I would like to extend my sincere condolences to Jerry's family and friend. Even though I am only fourteen years of age, Jerry brought such happiness to my life in the short time that I listened to him. On July 9th, 1995 I was able to see my first ever Grateful Dead show (thanks to GDTS). I brought along my father, and we both had a wonderful experience. I am lucky that I was there to see Jerry preform that night, for his singing and playing truly touched my father and I. By the way he sang "So Many Roads", I know that he is in peace now up above us. He will forever stay alive, in my heart, and in the hearts of all the thousands of his fans, friends, and family. Thank you Jerry, wherever you are now. Sincerely, Kevin Larsen
Date: Fri, 11 Aug 95 21:01:14 -0700 From: firstname.lastname@example.org I offer my sincerest condolences to all of Jerry's family, friends, and band partners. Although my experience with the Grateful Dead has been virtually none, I have come to understand what an impact this man's ideals had on the thousands of his loyal fans. I regret his loss and the fact that I was not more involved. Be strong and always know that he is in a much higher place where pain is nowhere to be seen. Thank You....
Date: Sat, 12 Aug 1995 00:01:37 EDT From: MZZE51B@prodigy.com (MR HOWARD I RUBIN) It's sad to see the passing of not just an icon but a symbol of hope, of a lifestyle-- of so much promise. Life in general has taken on a much harder edge in the past 20 or so years and we need to be reminded of what is and was the essence of the human spirit--I am afraid that a significant part of that essence has left us this week. Let all of us strive to keep Jerry's spark alive in us --for as long as we can make a difference than Jerry Garcia will live in our hearts, in our minds and in our souls. We must never let his contributions be diminished but we must go on-- at least we have Jerry's model of what the world could be and still can be. Howard Rubin

Organization: United States International University Subject: Some thoughts on Jerry IT has been hard to keep my eyes dry these last few days. I admit, Wednesday I did not stop crying all day, then I examined the message that Jerry gave us, once the reality had sunk in. Jerry always told us to be happy, to emjoy life, and to LOVE one another. Jerry, we loved you, more than words can describe. You were not an idol, an icon, an entertainer.. you were a friend, an uncle, you were, and always will be, Poppa. I'll never forget the sheer Joy you provided me in the 13 years I was a truly DEADICATED fan, though I heard my first dead song about 16 years ago. It took about 3 years, until I was 14 to really catch on. You were one of the focal points in my life, and will remain so. You are not dead, Poppa, you have merely left the shell you were confined in. A shell that was worn out, a shell that you knew needed repair. I bid you peace, Poppa. I love you. For Debby, I wish you well. I know that what Jerry wants is for us to all remember the good times, to remember the joy, to remember the laughter. A note to the band, as well.. Please go on.. after all, when we go to your shows "we're not doin' this for fun, ya know" - Poppa, 5/20/95 With much love and my deepest regards. Dann Clark
