I was checking my Facebook memories and I saw a copy of a post that I originally sent to this google group in 2004 and SKevin commented and I thought I had not seen any posts from him in a while and I see he passed away in July. Matthew also commented on that post. May they RIP

Oh no! Gio, are you saying you learned of his death on Facebook?

Yes FB, we were not in touch in any other way.

Dear Jim Carroll friends,
   I am saddened to hear of all these deaths. I have been out of the loop-to use a tired cliche-for years because I wasn't getting any updates. Then, about a month ago, I started getting all these emails about deaths of people I knew and loved only through this page. The good news is that you all are alive and, I hope, doing well. I don't know how many of you remember me but I remember you. God bless and keep you all. I am amazed to find that I am still going and am even a grandfather! I still feel, emotionally, like I'm 25 but physically like 80. But I'm only 69! To be honest, I never wanted to be this old and sometimes... But my daughter and family keep me going. As I said, you may not remember me but, I think, I used to sign off as Joey. Love!

Hi Joey! I remember you my friend. Bronx guy? I could be wrong about the Bronx part but I will always remember you Joey. I am so happy you have family love. I am sorry I am like the death grim reaper lady but I feel so awful that our fellow JC people are departed. This group meant and means so much to me! Love you all and Happy Birthday to JC. I salute you brother!

 love Gio

Dear Gio and all,
   You are right about the Bronx. I remember you, of course, and most others. I have not stopped reading Jim's poems (why would I?) and am excited to realize that with my 69 year old memory I can start reading all his prose as well and it will seem fresh. There are some benefits to old age although relatively few from where I sit, slouch, lay. Thanks, as always, Cassie..
                                                                                        Love,
                                                                                          Joey
