To Claude and the rest of the Crase family. I am very sorry to hear about Noah. As you know, he gave me my first and only banjo lesson. I was an avid follower of him and his skill on the banjo. Although I got back to Ohio once or twice a year and always asked about Noah, no one seemed to know where he was or how he was doing. I am really sorry that I did not get to see and listen to him at least one more time over the last 15 or so years. Bluegrass lost a great musician.
