I have just recieved a phone call from Cythia Simien, the wife of
Terrance Simien that Luther has an in-operable brain tumor and lung
cancer. Her information can from his agency which is trying to fill some
of Luther's dates. Please don't e-mail me any questions on details as
that is all I know for now and as his friend, I need time to collect
myself. This after losing Johnny Copeland is a little more than I can
handle at this time. I am sure that I join the rest of you in expressing
my deepest saddness and heartfelt wishes to him and beautiful wife
Rocky. Our thoughts and prays go out to them during this difficult time.
