Miss Fern, Mike, and Rob, I am so sad to hear about your loss of Mr. Jimmy. His passing leaves a hole in our hearts and in Dubach. I will never forget his beautiful deep mellow voice and that old guitar playing Jimmie Rogers and Hank Williams songs on the front porch of the Dubach Dogtrot. He became one of the core musicians joining the Pickin’ on the Porch jam at the Chicken Festival. What a joy it was to hear him and to talk with him. In the past couple of years when he couldn’t join us, we played his CD during the dogtrot tours. We will all miss him and all he did for Dubach. With loving sympathy, Susan Roach
