Sincere condolences to the family of Hirowo Harry Aoki, rest his soul. Since singing with Harry and Jim Johnson in Prince George in the 1960's, through being Harry's student near Oakridge in the 1980's, and reconnecting in the new millenium at First Friday Forums, Harry has been a pillar of musical knowledge & sharing, not only for my small collaborations, but also for so many people throughout the continent. May his spirit be blessed and his music and generosity continue to support all those with whom he joined in lyrical offerings.

THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES HARRY! A great mentor and inspiration, you were the first Asian Canadian musician I saw on television. See you at the "Big Jam" one of these days...
