Just read this on Facebook:
his message is from Stephen's daughter: "Love and gratitude to all the sweet messages and tributes here here. I visited with my dad yesterday and the day before along with my daughter, my sister, our brother, and our cousin. Dad is certainly frail and in recovery mode from a hospital stay, but as I understand it, there is no medical reason to believe he can't rally. He's eating again, was very happy to see us and fun to be with, and even cracked some jokes. Please hold a good thought for his appetite to maintain and for a return to health, knowing none of us last forever."
Which just goes to show, you can't trust everything you read or hear.
And maybe that old Shaman Farmer has some more good years in him yet and if so, I will be glad of that.
