In memory of my late Son

I got this Photo from my Son Ruben’s brother in blood.
Ruben and Jokke and friends at Blue Monk 
Sture, the one standing in the background is the only one of the 4 that still is alive. Last Sunday, January 29, Ruben was born 44 years ago. I still miss him very much….. He is to the left.

Sture gave me this Photo a year ago. I owe him deep thanks. For those of you that are familiar with Norwegian music bands: Yes, it is Jokke #2 from right.
I say no more……
