On "Day of the Dead", a radio DJ publishes the heartfelt letter he wrote to Prince the day after he passed away

On November 2 (Dia de Los Muertos/Day of the Dead), a radio DJ based in Texas published the letter he wrote to Prince the day after he passed away.

Check out his heartfelt homage to Prince published in OnStage Magazine:

The link doesn't work! But I found it.

Is he on the org?



These quotes in particular are the deep ones to me personally:

"I discovered myself thru your actions, and music obviously."

"I got it. I think I knew you, almost like a friend. "

"You left me hopeful."

"Prince, it’s a bit different than someone who discovers the Beatles or the Doors, or Bob Marley, or Jimi Hendrix. Those legends left a legacy to be discovered, and researched. I was with you thru the whole time, the rise and fall. The dark and light we rode the trip together. You left me feeling like we were the best of friends"

Thanks for the heads up ufoclub. It's fixed now.

Uncertain, whether the radio DJ is on the org.

Here are my favorite quotes from his letter:

just one more tidbit....in early June, i was admitted into the hospital with chest pains...long story short, i had a mild heart attack and was scheduled for open heart surgery....it was for tues June 7th. (yup...his bday!)

ive been told that at the time of my surgery, at 7:30 MY radio station and others in town played a Prince song for me...and my friends told me they listened to their fave songs.

so, he is indeed in my heart.

story is trully unbelieveable, but i can assure you *taps on chest scar* its true!

he's no good to me dead!
