I have been a "Deadhead" for many, many years and was fortunate enough to see him live a couple of times. Although he is gone, his music will forever remain in our hearts. Rest in Peace, Jerry.

Organization: University of Texas Subject: What a long strange trip..... Thank you, Jerry, for all of the incredible guitar solos that took me away and brought me back. I always considered you the "tour guide" for my Grateful Dead concert journeys...and you were the best. Now it is your turn to be the "tourist" and someone will guide you to the far reaches of the universe .... as you have done for so many people in your lifetime.

Organization: New Mexico Tech Hydrology A saddness has come, and will eventually pass. But what of all of the energy, seems it's now up to us to carry it on. For so long we relied on the boys to pick the venue, set the tone, and kick out the jams. It was all training for a day like this. Now we have the hardest job, to carry on the dream without Jerry. Was it all really just a rock n roll thing? I think not, it was a gathering of the tribes in preparation for the day when we claim our spiritual birthright of living in light on this planet. Now we can decide if it was all real or all a subcultural theatre. I claim it to be real, more today than any other. The world is watching us grieve, can we through this attention deliver our message of love and cooperation? I can't stop thinking about this book Indira and I just read, The Fifth Sacred Thing by Starhawk. The vision of the book is so close to the vision of the dead family, we are all related. Yet I am so tired of pretending to be a shaman, pretending that we live on a blessed planet, pretending that there really is something more here than meets the eye. Today and beyond I will not appologise for being a deadhead, I will claim my spirituality as real and live it fully. No more waiting for summer tour to be a shaman, now the future's here we are it and we are on our own. Have we been released from pretending and given the great opportunity to create from this 30 year playacting festival a true vision? YES YES YES I ache, yet there is hidden joy. I have cried more in the last day than in the last decade, yet as the tears fall each one opens my heart more and more. I am in love with everybody today, I feel so full. Love you David, thanks for the spirit. M

Subject: Jerry Garcia On August 9,1995 while driving along Interstate 275 in Tampa, Fl. an announcement came over the radio that Jerry Garcia had died, at that moment in time a piece of me died, as I continued on to my destination I found that I was in a total fog and had no idea what was really happening-I have only had this feeling once before and that was when my Dad passed away. I grew up with the Grateful Dead, it was our time- and I would just like to say Thanks for the lifestyle and the Music Peace & Love to All

Subject: ...Sometimes we walk alone Sometimes we do walk alone - I pray that each of you keep well along this difficult journey. At a low point in my life, having suffered much abuse from my family as a child, I was giving up - I felt hopeless and suicidal. Then one day, I heard a song. This song was my song and was coaxed out of hiding with a little help from our dear Jerry. My life has changed now, and as an adult, I work with abused, hungry and emotionally needy young children in San Francisco. Together we sing and together we dance. Jerry has brought innumerable moments of joy into my life and, indirectly, the lives of these children. His faith in humanity will forever carry on through the positive influences he has had on so many people's lives. Peace and love to you. Sharon Baylis

Date: Thu, 10 Aug 95 16:11:18 -700 Jerry was a vessel of light and inspiration for many. He was looked upon as the "Zaide" (grandfather) of the rock and roll scene, and gave a lost generation a sense of family and belonging. Our blessings of comfort and consulation go out to his family and his extended family.

Date: Thu, 10 Aug 95 16:26:28 -700 Subject: from nina @ global pacific records Jerry was the leader of a rainbow colored orchestra that transended not only generations, but lives and levels of conciousness. My experiences at Dead shows over the years have been the best years of my life. I have met the kindest folk, made the best friends, and even know "angels" from the scene. When anthropologists study our micro-society some day, will they even scratch the surface of what it all means? Jerry was the "Elder", the chief of the clan. I pray for his spirit and soul, and know that the music he poured from his heart will immortalize him as the spirits of Janis, Jimi and Jim. It doesn't make me any less sad, and I speak for a sub-clan in Northern California in saying that our lives will never be the same without the chief. We are all touched by his light. I hope he and Bill will continue to shine their light on us. My prayers and best wishes to the band, his immediate family, and the largest extended non-blood family a man could ever have. You are so sadly missed!!!
