My son looks like John Denver but cannot sing like him. But John Denver always reminds me of sunny days.
Especially when my children were young.

I loved his music. My first time skiing in Colorado was a highpoint in my life. I wished I could live there. It was paradise.

I love John Denver’s songs. I don’t think he was amply recognized for his talent. I have CD’s of his music which I love and listen to often

I loved John Denver. He was much to young to leave this world. I will add this, he was so gifted.
