I erased it thinking that I would talk to him that weekend, I did not know that was the last time I was going to hear his voice. I wish I had saved the message. Well at least Lindsay doesn’t have aphasia and if he wants to communicate in writing he can. That is a blessing.
I think that the fact that he was able to play Landslide shows that he's all there mentally. I can't imagine that he could do that, if that weren't the case.

I'm happy that he looks great, and that he has hopefully lots of time here with his family. The rest is small peanuts, in comparison. It's not about us.
And I'm David, not Homer!(we all should be able to change our name, at least once)
