I never had the privilege of meeting Echo, but feel her passing keenly because it's a reminder that the generation to which Buddy belonged is slowly, but surely, ageing and passing away. For some reason, I feel this much more intimately with the passing of Echo McGuire than I did with others who have left us in 2017 such as Chuck Berry and Fats Domino. Perhaps that is because she had such an intimate and personal relationship with Buddy in their high school years.

I know the slogan used for decades has been "Buddy Holly Lives!" but I wonder if a time might come when that won't be the case. Will it be when Maria Elena Holly or Jerry Allison pass away? Will it be when the few others who were prominent in Buddy's life and are still alive in 2017 pass? Will it be when the entire generation who remember the rockin' 50's first hand is gone?

I truly believe the music is immortal, but the fandom will never be the same and will inevitably evolve, as those intimate with Buddy leave us one by one.

Just my two cents' worth here.
