What a great talent to be missed. It's so difficult to cope especially when we lose someone so talented; who meant so much to family and friends. May the God of all comfort be with you during this period of great loss as future promises awaits us when our mourning will be turned into joy .(Jeremiah 31:13 )

You gave me great memories since I was a tot. You were the greatest ever. I will miss you and Lester always. Thank you for the memories and I will seek out your music so long as I shall live. There just aint nuthin better.
Rest in peace my friend. I hope to see you both on the other side.

The most imitated musician in American History. A hero of all banjo pickers around the world. I had an opportunity to visit the Earl Scruggs Center in his home town of Shelby, NC this week. All banjo players should visit, wonderful place to see the life of the Great Earl Scruggs.
