    In Memoriam

    Dear Casey

    Dear Casey, Here is my Long Distance Dedication. Many years ago on Sunday mornings I faithfully listened to a radio DJ with a golden voice and a unique gift. His specialty was reading letters and getting messages from listeners out to people in far off places in hopes of a response. Other times, we heard that joyous reunions were made because the message had successfully reached its destination. This was a time lacking Facebook and when people were lost they could be gone forever. He read letters on the air of people's lost loves, family members and friends. Sometimes the letters spoke of even a pet; a dog, a cat or a companion who had crossed over. Many letters spoke of a soldier, missed so much, that the writer's hoped that he or she could hear them wherever they were. This DJ felt what he read and because of this he even had the power to make me cry. I had often wondered whatever happened to this radio personality, then one day I had heard that he himself was senile and lost. There were a lot of people searching but there wasn't anybody to read an on air dedication to him. Then he was found and like overnight had soon passed away. I was saddened to hear it was you. So Casey would you for one last time play a dedication to a long lost friend? A song written by George Harrison "All Those Years Ago". Oh Yeah, Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the Stars!
