Junior Mance passed peacefully today at home with his music, Matt and myself.
I will forever miss his smiles, his love, his laughter our shared happiness and ultimately my best friend.
I know the world has lost a jazz legend, he was undoubtedly a very loving, happy and unforgettable person. I have lost my soulmate.
I know there will be people reaching out with calls, texts, and prayers. Please know I will read and appreciate them all even if they may go unanswered for a while. I will respond.
