    Yes, really aren't words enough for the sadness. Such a great human who touched millions of lives with his character and songs. So many people hit by this tragedy.

    Thank you John.

    Very sad. Prine was in a category all his own. He was one of those guys who was just “musical.” He assembled lyrics and performed music in a way that touched my heart and soul.
    My prayers go out for his family.

    So sad, he will be missed. We are fortunate to have his music to listen to, he was a wonderful song writer.

    Oh my, I just read that. I am deeply saddened, I have always enjoyed his songs, he was truly gifted.

    May he rest in peace.

    So many words to live by came from his mouth and pen.

    Terribly sad news. Ugh...

    A daily punch in the solar plexus.

    Mercy.

    One of a kind. So sad. I'm just about wordless. He touched so many with his stories and humor. God speed!

    Good night John. I hope you find that cigarette that's nine miles long.
