My dear friend and brother Larry Howard went home to Jesus tonight. I fully expect to worship God with him in due time. He and sweet wife Peggy are -gems-, just amazing people who gave/give their lives to the Love that never ends, showing care and compassion to many the world ignored, forgot or just wouldn’t give the time of day.
I came up playing a great deal of blues and so vividly remember the first time I heard Larry and band at one of our very early Cornerstone Festivals (helping w. my wife to front REZ Band at the time). I freaked in the best way! Finally! FINALLY there was a what-you-see-is-what-you-get bro who could write, sing and play genuine blues with heart and indeed (too rare) an **off-stage kindness** that lifted up and brought home to me as it has countless others.
Touring in the U.S., Europe, recording projects together, eatin’ rib tips… both deeply caring/working for inmates… long (loooonnnggg) amazing late-night jams… we share/shared much. And we both married WAY above ourselves 🙂
Here is Larry and one of his closest buds Skip Frye (another gem!). If you missed Larry, I’ll tell you straight-up, he’d want you to know DON’T miss Jesus. He’s with Him as I write.
As always, thanks for stopping by. -Glenn
