    When Jerry Garcia died in 1995, People Magazine released a special tribute edition. I purchased one. My brother in law, who is considerably older than me, was a huge Grateful Dead fan. Earlier that year, my sister and brother-in-law tried to convince my parents to let them bring me to a concert. They said no way. Looking back, and being that I was 13 at the time, I can't blame them. But because of my brother in-law, I was already, and still am, a huge Dead Head.

      Love the Dead. But loved Jerry and all of his side trips into folk and traditional music even more.

      I have two of these. I was in bootcamp when he died and right after graduation my parents gave me a t-shirt they had gotten me at the shore. It said Jerry Garcia 1942-1995. I said, what does this mean, is he retiring from touring? (something totally irrational for it not to be the true reason) No, he died, my dad said. My heart was broken, bootcamp graduation suddenly was of no concern to me. I cried the whole way home..........
