Yesterday my dear friend and tribal brother in music danced his Last Waltz; as a Facebook friend so eloquently put it, he has joined the great Spirit Song on another plane. Lonnie Knight (http://www.lonnieknight.com/) was a guitar player the likes of which will not be seen again soon – his skills were beyond compare; a songwriter with the uncanny ability to get right into your bones with his story – one moment sobbing, the next laughing; and more than anything else, a humble, kind, loving human being and friend. The love of his life, Patti Patton, needs your warm, Light-filled thoughts right now – she is a force to be reckoned with herself, generous and noble and utterly devoted to Lonnie and his musical life, and thus utterly devastated by this untimely loss. His family (sister Kathy and her peeps), friends (Reid, Glenn, myself – well, you all know who you are), and all lovers of caring, gracious, kind, skillful people – we all need prayers for hope and Light and peace right now. Thank you. I love you.
