Wow.  Embarrassed

I scrolled through the obits for 2011.  Two I had completely missed:

Bil Keane of "Family Circus" cartoon fame died in November.

Marshall Grant passed in August.  Grant was half of Johnny Cash's 'Tennesee Two'.  Grant was the bass player.  The other half, Luther Perkins on lead guitar, passed years ago in a house fire.

Marshall Grant died here in Arkansas while they were having a memorial for Johnny Cash to raise money for a new museum.

Just couldn't get any sadder than that.  How does one donate money to the 'original' House of Cash?  (the one in Arkansas).
