Sometimes I’m Petty

Dear Tom,

Thank you for becoming famous.  Thank you for your words.  Your music.  Thank you for knowing what I was going through growing up, and thank you for making your songs so timeless that it helps me through my days, even now that I’m older.  And thank you for making me NOT feel older.

This morning I am learning to fly.  I am dancing it out in the closet.  I am performing breakfast karaoke.  I may not always be happy, but you help me try to find it.

I am sorry you are gone.  But man, what a legacy!

Say hello to David, and Prince, and Glenn, and Chris, and Chester.  I cannot imagine the beautiful music you are making together.

But I will always appreciate the music you left behind.

Sincerely,

A Fan
