I read your book twice. There are so many new and interesting insights that, for me, twice was required. I was caught up in the spell of your perception and your experiences with Lloyd.
Since the Grant/Haynes friendship was rooted in the earlier, leaner years when struggle was our context and we were dependent upon each other’s ability to consult and problem solve together, and when we cherished our beach parties, teeming with kids shared picnic baskets, and always, music, strangers and friends.
Your book is a gift to those who knew and loved him. I recommended it to four others who have read it. The book sheds light upon the fulfillment years for you and Lloyd. I personally thank you for the book and for the call to alert me to it.
