    He Lives On In Our Hearts

    Artist Lost Too Soon

    Another Gone Too Soon

     Time in a bottle is my favorite song.  Wait, there's Operator.  That one makes me cry & I don't cry easily. Gone at the age of only 30.  Seems only a few years ago that clean, clear voice was on the radio. I had his album. You could hear the guitar...
