I am so sorry to say that my dear friend Ron Stallings does not have much time left on earth. His friends had a gathering at his house today in Berkeley CA. I wish I could have been there. I wish more that this was not happening and that Ron could have more time to live and love and play music. He is such a sweet warm person and is loved by many many people, probably everyone who met him. This is so sad it's hard or impossible to express. My heart goes out to Susan as well.
