    Although it’s 7.30am on a wet Sunday morning I feel really strangely uplifted by this, it has helped me get a handle on my sense of loss as I get older thanks for sharing Fran

    Wow Fran, I'm so sorry I had no idea about your experience of the whole 9/11 event. I lost a distant family member myself in that travesty. She was there for a seminar apparently. When I did telephone tech support back in the late 90's I got to speak to Dick a few times helping him with an early fire-wire hard drive he needed to get music off of. He was touring at the time and after I did all I could (a driver issue) Dick very graciously offered to put my name and a guest on the list to get in for free one night at Joey Harrison's Surf Club in Ortley Beach. I took him up in it and wow. He was an amazing musician and when it was finally time to speak to him, (it was a long line) he showered a friend and I with kudos and plaudits for being there at MacWarehouse to assist him with any tech issue he had. That was when tech support was free. One thing that stuck with me about Dick was what he said to me at the end of a phone call I had with him one day, that in his life there were no strangers, only friends he hadn't yet met. That was the kind of guy he was. He offered to allow my friends who had their pilot licenses at the time to fly in and land at his personal airport, 'just get the sectionals , and call ahead to make sure I'm there'…who does that?

    Your Francast "Loss" very much reminds me of the tradition called the Shivah. This is where a community gathers with the friends and family of a deceased person. The family members have the opportunity to make comments if they want to. This podcast is exactly what the Shivah comments are like. Usually it takes the form of talking and telling stories about the deceased and sharing letters and photos. It is hard to do but helps the family deal with their loss. What I have noticed after attending Shivah gatherings over the past few decades is that as much as it helps the person experiencing the loss, it also helps the community members because as you point out, we all experience loss.
    Yes this podcast is a 'downer' but I think it also helps you. I just want to you to know, that it also helps many of your listeners.
