Hey Larry,

Saw Gil when he came to Durham and, as always, looked to him to speak to us
and enlighten us with his knowledge and wisdom.  I brought at least 15 of
his albums to the concert and got him to sign a few.  It's truly sad that
one of our true Griots is gone.  His voice will be missed.   "It's Winter In
America."

Sad day in the world today.  There were rumors in NYC that he was dying.
When he performed in Durham, NC, last year, he didn't well at all.  Peace go
with you brother!
