Back when seemingly everyone loved "Please Come to Boston", I was in my 20's and spent a weekend with my brother, who was also in his 20's (5 years older), and he played "Apprentice in a Musical Workshop" over and over. He was a huge fan of yours! My brother had cystic fibrosis and died May 1, 1987. The one thing I requested from his wife was your album, which I love, and platy often, but especially every year on or near May 1st. There is more to this story: my sister and I both vividly remember sitting in our family car the next day and listening to a song that came on the radio: Three Dog Night's "Pieces of April." We found it ironically apropos for our mood at the time. I apologize, but I only learned today that you actually wrote (and performed yourself) "Pieces of April". You have played a strong role in my family for close to 40 years, and the plaintive quality of your voice only enhances the memorial experience I have when I listen to your songs and think about my brother. Thank you for your music and the meaningful place you hold for my family. If you so choose, I would treasure a reply.

I vividly remember 1974, when I was eleven years old, "Please Come to Boston" was playing all the time, and was my favorite song. That summer, while swimming in a pool on a sunny summer day I met a man named Larry who was from Boston; he was here in Houston getting treatment for leukemia. I remember him watching me, wistfully, dive into the pool, splashing and enjoying life to the fullest, and thinking what a bummer it was that he was so ill and watching someone so young and healthy having fun in the sun. For some reason, "Please Come to Boston" has reminded me ever since of that summer day. Now, 45 years later, I was diagnosed about month ago with leukemia. So laying here in a hospital bed for the past 36 days, I've been thinking about that summer, of the man I met from Boston with leukemia. And if I could hear one last song in my life, it would be "Please Come to Boston."

Not sure if this will ever find Mr. Loggins, but I thought it was worth the shot. I am the co-host of a podcast named TalkinGolf History. More than anything the podcast is about sharing stories related to the game of golf. On that very note, I think your story of writing the Masters theme song is a unique and relatively unknown story that golfers should know. Again- not sure if this finds you but if it does I hope it finds you well.

Hi my name is Alyse Alboucq and I'm 11 and I wrote a 4th verse to Please Come To Boston and I thought you'd like to read it. "Please come to Texas with the Lone Star, my friends and I are planning to build a house their. I hope that you can come and see it, but really I can?t afford it without you. Please come to Texas, she said no, boy you come home to me." Thanks for reading.

I remember the days we were in Gov. class in summer school. You said you would become a singer and a song writer. Keep on trucking.
