Rusty's Memorial Weekend at Wildwood

How many of you Poco and Rusty Young fans will be at Wildwood next weekend for Mary's celebration of Rusty's life and music?

After getting our booster shots last week, Sharon and I are going.

We couldn't make it. Can you give us an update? Did any former members of Poco or other special guest artistss join in the memorial concert? Any songs written for the occasion?

It would be impossible for me to explain in words the emotional impact of the weekend.

George and Debbie Grantham made the effort to get there, Richie Furay sent a video and Michael Webb, who couldn't be there Friday due to a previous commitment, got up early Saturday morning and drove all day from Nashville to get there for the Saturday night concert and the Sunday memorial service.

Mary did an incredible job of putting the weekend together.

There were a lot of tears, lots of Rusty's music a some of Paul's.

The memorial service was perfect, more tears and a lot of laughing and it set the perfect tone.

A true landmark event in the history of Poco.

Ditto,

Lot's of tears, lots of comments, remembrances, and the music...

Saddest weekend I think I have ever had, but it was all good. Glad I made the drive. I am going to miss the Wildwood weekends and the regular concerts.
