    If you are not an organ donor, you need to be one. The Mayo Clinic says that 20 people die every day because of a shortage of organ donors.

    Re: We Lost John Prine.

    One of a kind. So sad. I'm just about wordless. He touched so many with his stories and humor. God speed!
  14. Re: Larry Campbell and John Prine ill with Covid 19

    Jackson Browne too. Sadly, our heros are old, just like us. Prayers for all who are stricken by this disease. Prine had lung cancer about 8 years ago and I'm sure has diminished capacity.

    Don, I hope you have seen a Dr. about this. There is a chance you have rheumatoid arthritis, which can be treated. "Getting old" arthritis is osteoporosis. There is a difference.
