Hi Ronnie,

Last time we communicated you were involved with your daughter's marriage and things were quite hectic fir you. I hope you are doing well. Last week, I got a chance to see The Rolling Stones in concert and Mick opened with Jumpin Jack Flash and I remember your excellent work on the guitar as you carried me in my attempt to sing the lead on an Army truck on an Indiana beach a long time ago. Please let me know if you will be playing any tim soon and I will be there. I live in Oak Brook, so I'm not that far away. Take care

I don't know if you remember me, John Moyer's sister. I often wondered about what all his band members were doing so I looked up Carol Vega and I am in shock to find so many photos of my brother. If only he were alive and my mom to enjoy this. Thank you and the rest of the band for putting pictures of him on the net. OMG! I was in such shock to see his handsome face, I cried for hours. I miss him so much and have been through so much Hell in my life. John Committed suicide in 1983 down here in Naples FL where I live alone. I wish to God John had stayed with you guys. All of you have gone so far and I am so proud of all of you. He got into a black band who were so deep into drugs. Please don't think I am prejudist against black people. John had his own choices. In 1970s he did live with his black girl friend who shot him point blank in the stomach and I pulled him through that but it was the begining of his spiral down into drugs dealing with the physical and mental pain.
I lost my mom in 2004, in 2005 the hospital here let my son Norman's brain burn up with fever and he has lived in a mental hospital 350 miles from me for going on 5 years now. I travel up to see him every two weeks and it is so exhausting and depressing. I fall asleep at the wheel sometimes and afraid some day I will get killed in an accident. I am trying to get him into a nursing home here in Naples but I can't afford private pay polaces so I have to wait and pray for a Medicaid bed. It is a nightmare. do you remember my son? HIs name is Norman Paul Kahle. I never realized that Norm Cotton's name was Norman Paul.
I will try to get in touch with other past members of the group but if I can't please pass on the update on John and give all of them my love.
I used to date Tom Dreesen the comedian but he no longer speaks to me now tht he is famous. He did come down here to visit and gave me his e-mail address but he failed to tell me that hhe had a girl friend and that she would get the e-mail so I caused some friction between them. Oops! If he had been honest with me I would have been careful with what I said. I really hated to lose his friendship. He was very special and with all the mental pain I have been through it is just another thing for me to try to deal with and it is hard having no friends or family. I hope you get to read this and will stay in touch as well as the rest of the group. I want to get intouch with Carol too

Hey Ron, if you ever need a lead for "Light My Fire", I promise I can now stay in key. It would be great to see you again. It's been a long time since the Guard days.

Ron - I was a friend of yours at St. Margaret's. You wowed us on the guitar then and it looks like you're still doing it. We went to different high schools and and never saw each other again, unfortunately. Anyway, best wishes and keep up the great sound.
