I take the opportunity to play Lonnie's best stuff to people who hardly know who he was - quite common for me because I now live in the USA. They're usually very impressed and it's fun 'springing' hos old records on a new audience. Most of these folk are musicians themselves because that's my line-of-work; they've maybe heard his name but don't know his work, so when I'm out on the road touring I always have one of his CDs with me for just such an eventuality.
Best wishes to your daughter from me, and do come back and visit when you get a chance.
