75. Oh man...

One of the songs played live at my brother Pat's funeral service... Pat had been left a quadriplegic by a drunk driver when he was but 16 years of age... he lived 13 more years only. He was more than my brother, he was my confidant and my best friend, and I miss him as much to this day as to the day he passed. He left us 26 years ago this past December 6th, on my fathers birthday. I had the lyrics published on a memorial card gifted to all who loved him, and I tweaked the lyrics just a bit...

"Fly on fly home, fly home my friend, go on, go home... go home and walk again.."

An eagle is engraved on his headstone with these same lyrics.

I can't begin to tell you how touched I am that you too love this song, and the incomparable SRV. Thank you for posting this.
