|My deepest sympathy goes to Gary, Randy and families. Your father was the best and will be the best there ever was on the 5-string banjo of all time. I was a huge fan of Earl Scruggs. I bought a 1947 songbook from E-bay years ago that had Earl Scruggs, Lester Flatt & Bill Monroe together as one of the greatest bands of all time in any genre of music. You will be missed dearly by many of your fans. I'm so sorry for your loss. Thank you.
