Genie Amos is ill (January 2019) (114* d) RE: Amos is ill (January 2019) 07 Jan 19


Really sad to hear of such turns to the worse, Rebecca. Iíve been following what Amos has posted on Facebook about his struggle with bladder cancer but not the follow up on CaringBridge, so I really appreciate your bringing us up to date, as terrible as this news is.
Amos was one of my first contacts and mentors and friends on Mudcat and the first one I met in person who was not from Portland. From the fall of 2001, when I met Amos and Daly in San Diego, through Camp Runamok in Ellensburg,WA in 2002, through jamming with Amos in Balboa Park many times and recording songs with him in his garage office/studio, having him include one of my songs on the Blue Plate Special CD, his writing a 60th birthday song for me, his recording my sister Tammy and me on another song for the This Is Us CDs and recording a duet with me,and backing me and Tammy up at San Diego open mics and also jamming with him at Getaway several years and at Portland FolkMusic Societyís Singtime Frolics - plus lots of informative and entertaining exchanges here at Mudcat, Amos has been a treasured folkie friend and inspiration .
I am praying for a much better outcome than seems likely and sending love and honor for our dear friend, your brother Amos. I wish I could do more.
Thanks so much and please send my sincere caring thoughts and wishes to Daly and Tucker.
Genie
