    I was privileged to have attended Doc’s funeral. As I posted on FB at the time:

    Just rolled in from having attended Doc Watson’s funeral. I don’t know how it could have been more fitting. This is the way a funeral should be. Doc was a man of music, and the funeral was simply music and friends.
