[Dixielandjazz] People I miss.

Frank Powers:  who died with a stack of Turk Murphy LPs on his piano 
waiting to be digitised for me, pending his beginning to feel better 
from the diabetes that very soon thereafter took him from us.

Bob Helm:  who, in 2002, died, hopefully, having already seen my 
personal letter, including a photocopy of a snapshot taken of the two of 
us in 1997, at which meeting he recalled having said to me the year 
before that he would provide me an autographed photo (point being: a 
rock-solid memory).

Dixie Teel:  a short-time member of DJML, who loved every minute of it, 
but who by at least late-2002 disappeared from the list, and mail sent 
directly to her came back labelled "MOVED".  I learned of this state of 
affairs by my trying to send back to her some CDs she had loaned to me 
previously.  Today, I "own" these CDs, as an unintentional memoir of 
her.  That, and the most precious fact that my pristine copy of *Turk 
Murphy: Just for the Record* was a flat-out gift from her to me.

Please pardon the deliberate sentimentality.  I hope that the only 
person who remembers, publicly, the wonderful thing that DJML's 
anniversary is, can be forgiven, and am,

Fr M J (Mike) Logsdon, Vicar-general
