I can't imagine what it will be like watching one of his golden hits now, and thinking he's no longer alive - there's something oddly raw in that feeling!

And you say it to the point nuttycleo - perhaps the most admirable and lovable trait of this wonderful man and veteran artist was his spirit to be alive - even in great suffering!
