Jesse McReynolds, veteran country star, diagnosed with heart problems
The 84-year-old star continues to play mandolin and write new songs
Jesse’s wife Joy tells Bluegrass Today that he is feeling well. “He is up and about, but trying not to overdo it until we get a handle on this,” she said. “The hardest part for an active guy like him is taking it easy. But he’s playing his mandolin and taking advantage of this time to practice and write new songs.”
Cards can be sent to McReynolds at this address: PO Box 1385, Gallatin, TN 37066.
To Doubledayborgstein-regardless of whether you have heard of him, he is a person and it is sad he is in ill health whether he is 20 or 120. His family will still feel the loss, they know him and love him and their loss will put a hole in their family that cannot be filled. So come one lets have a little compassion. Have you never lost anyone in your family.
