From my perspective 67 is far too young to die!

I never knew Johnny personally, but we got such a lot of fun from his music that

I know I will miss not having him around.  Remember Rendezvous?  Gee, we still

do that dance after all these years, and we still get a lot of enjoyment out of it.

 

 When you have to leave the planet if you can leave behind a legacy

of fun, enjoyment and pleasure then you must have been doing

something right……  and JOHNNY DUNCAN has certainly done that.

 Goodbye Johnny, I’m sure you will find lots of friends in the place where you have gone.

 

Hope you enjoy Johnny’s dance, it’s easy, so everyone should be able to manage it.

 See you on the floor sometime….. Jan
