Such a wonderful voice. Isn't it wonderful that our technology means we can still here that voice.

It is sad- I think he suffered. What a gift he left us. I did get to hear him sing live once- fabulous.

How fortunate that you were able to hear him sing in person. I have a good friend who is currently battling pancreatic cancer. It's a tough and painful fight.
