8/17/03 - I was Deeply Saddened when I heard of the Passing of Rana Ross ... I will never forget a couple of years back I recieved an E-mail from her requesting that I add her link to my 'Cool Links' page ... After that we became what you might call Web Friends ... We would go thru phases at times when we would fly E-mails back and forth over a few days telling each other what we were doing in the music world ... I was also Shocked of the News as I had not seen or heard of any of this until I saw her obituary in the July 2003 issue of Bass Player Magazine which I had just picked up at Guitar Center last week ... Also Shocked of the fact that I had sent her a few E-mails thru May and June before our tour, never getting a reply which was really unusual because she always got back to me ... Anyway, Here is the first E-mail she sent to me a couple years back including her phone numbers which I will not post here of course...One Last Thing, Ranas Husband John has informed me That She was Born in 1961.
