    Just read recently in the loss of your loved one, that Gren had passed away. So sad, and way too soon. My deepest sympathies to you and yours, . . my thoughts and prayers are with you.

    There is no one who has given as much support to the Brigden Jamborees, Corunna Jam Sessions (and other open mic venues) over the years,
    as Grenville and yourself.

    With sincere condolences, and from the heart, . . thinking of you.
