Sending my best to the Lus family.
I played drums in a band with Marc in the summer of 1971&72. I remember playing every all-ages show throughout the Cape with him. I have very fond memories of rehearsing at your home back then. You always made me feel welcomed. I will never forget playing those two summers with Marc and think of them often.
