My dear friend of 40+ years, Twin Cities native John Sutton (Sir Oliver Humperdink), has been the topic of conversation on the internet over the past several days. To quell unsubstantiated rumors, I want all of his friends and fans to know that I spoke with him earlier today (3/10.) He was re-admitted to a Minneapolis hospital on Tuesday after his pneumonia came back with a vengeance. As most of you know, Sir Oliver has been battling cancer for a while now, and doctors have told him it is inoperable. Despite what may have been posted on the internet, he has NOT left us, and continues to remain comfortable as doctors try to clear the pneumonia. He is aware of, and very much appreciates, the prayers and good wishes from everyone. If he is up for visitors, I will go to see him tomorrow and provide an update as to his status.
