Flowers left for Chet Atkins
Chet, We all know what a great musician you were, but this is a personal memory. I had been dropped off at college for my freshman year, left on the steps of an empty dorm with a pat on the back and words of encouragement, and I was homesick. We all know the feeling I suppose. I showered, and shaved, and rolled into my bunk. The place was quiet as a tomb, nothing to be heard but the dripping of the shower head. So, feeling mighty low, I turned on a radio in the room, and the station was devoting an evening to your music. So I listened, to your beautiful artistry, and it was comforting somehow, and I fell asleep listening to your music. It was one of those moments in life that you never forget. You were truly a master of the instrument, and a nice companion to a lonesome kid all those years ago. RIP
