I just read Paul's latest update. He's having a very rough time of it, including an unanticipated abdominal surgery this week. He very nearly died. I'm amazed at how he can write about it so lucidly.

Wow Opie,


Read the blog.  What an incredible, terrible ride you've been on.  Just letting you know we are praying and rooting for you here back with your guitar family.  Looking forward to having you back to normal soon.


Take care Paul,

Wow Opie, I've been reading your blog. Tough times, and yet you can still put some humor into your writing. I have not been able to attend Guitar Gathering, so we haven't met. I am keeping you in my thoughts and prayers and hope you can beat this. Take care.

Hey Opie,

Just caught up with your post from last week on your blog. We are all still praying for you here and hope that soon you will feel good enough to start picking up the guitar. I know you have a long recovery ahead but wanted to know we are still thinking about you!
I know it will be hard but Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!
