It goes beyond description to speak of Mr. Scruggs' talent and what he brought to those of us who love and appreciate his tremendous musical gifts. Never did we hear any risque' comments, off-color or political incorrect jokes; only real music and clean lyrics. How many entertainers can say that today? Thank you for giving us programs of wholesome entertainment. I was fortunate to hear Mr. Scruggs close up and personal in a small high school concert in Alabama in 1970 as a college coed on a date with my future husband, which was even better than hearing him at the Ryman Theater years later. May heaven's angels welcome you with open arms, Mr. Scruggs and escort you to the throne room of our Heavenly Father to play your banjo in eternity. Know that you will NEVER be forgotten because of your wonderful recordings left for all of us to cherish. There will never be your kind of musical talent again who represented blue grass and country music with such dignity and sensitivity. Thank you so much for bringing so much joy to so many. I would also like to express my sincere sympathy to the Scruggs family and thank them for sharing and supporting their father 's desire to entertain.
