Then this came today through the website:
Hi Charley. I am sure you don't remember me. My name is Steven ****, and I took bass lessons from you as a teenager back in 1990 and 1991 (first at focus II and then at your house in Bayside). I am now a 41 year old practicing psychologist. i still play the bass occasionally for fun , and I still remember things you taught me 25 years later. I just wanted to say hello and let you know what a fantastic teacher you were.
