Hey Clark, The boy’s are still talking about the great time they had visiting their uncle Clark in April. Thanks to Gwen, I just ordered your book and should receive it next week. Get better soon! the Lanes.

“Woman, you mus’ crazy” (per you and Moody). Please get out of that hospital quick. Hospitals are for sick people. Among other experiences I recall having dinner with you and Leonard Feather years ago at an Italian restaurant on Fremont outside the fairgrounds at the Monterey Jazz Festival. Also, walking you on and off stage at a Don Miller gathering in Scottsdale.

Hang on tight man, take care and be good to you. The best to you and Gwen.

Love you

Last week was one of the most special times in my life. I have always loved the time that I got to spend with you Uncle Clark, and it meant more than you will ever know to me to be able to see you, talk to you, and hold your hand. I’m so thrilled to see you getting better. Gwen and I had some lovely visits and laughs, and I can’t wait until I can come back and share some more with you all. I miss you so much already and I promise, I will be back! I love you so much and am thrilled to see you that you continue to “Keep on Keepin’ On”!!! xoxo Love Céline!

Mr. Terry,
On behalf of all of us at WMUA in Amherst, MA, Best Wishes for a quick recovery and a return to good health.

Dear Mr. Terry;
Sending you love from the Big Apple. I will never forget the gift of inspiration you gave me. When I was a high school tenor saxophonist, you & I played a duet together with the all-star big band down in Houston Texas in 1971. Your profound influence on me guided me through the rest of my developmental years & I never forgot how special that moment was. Thank you, Sir

Just got word of your hospitalization. I feel guilty about not having called or written you in a long time. Thinking of you frequently.

Dear Clark, We just heard you were in hospital. The photo of you shows that your sense of humour is still strong so that is the best cure. We are all thinking of you and sending you good energy, prayers and lots of love to you and Gwen and the family! I am still striving to more like you! Take care, big kisses and hugs from Joan, George, Shu Mei and Matthew (Teo)
