    From Jim Carlton
    "Jimmy Wyble passed away at 5:25 a.m. this morning (Saturday). He'd been suffering with a respiratory disease for many months but was in no pain when he died. He was, even at that hour, with friends who were standing vigil. Fortunately, the hospital sent him home yesterday so he could be in a more pleasant and familiar place. And fortunate as well that the guitar community had paid homage to Jimmy formally and informally over the past couple of years so he got to see his contribution and career honored while he was still with us. He would have been 88 on the 25th of this month."
