Thank you. I know that many of you wanted to know about such an event. And David Rubinson, the Grassroots and Tim McGraw are right: Live for Today. Live Like You Were Dying. Celebrate each other, now. Dianne and I spoke w Ray’s manager, who confirmed that it was all very sudden–diagnosis in March–and still very sad. And to my list, add Warren Zevon, who counseled, “Enjoy every sandwich.” — Ben Fong-Torres (Facebook, June 10, 2013)
