Re: Reflections on Jim's legacy and how it has been mishandled
"She paid lawyers big money to make sure nothing would happen like has indeed happened." Those lawyers who got the big money and failed to do the job they were hired to do should be sued, in my opinion. Their names and addresses should be made public so that anyone who wishes to can contact them and tell them what money-grubbing, self-serving shysters they are. Sadly, that would describe most attorneys, whose main interest in their clients is how much money they can make off of them, and not how well they can represent them. The "legal system", so-called, bears a major portion of the blame for this mess. Mary had a will, why wasn't it followed??? Isn't a will a legal document? Why is it lawyers and judges think they can ignore legal documents and do as they please?? Money, most likely.
It is also sad that some of the very people who should be the most interested in preserving the legacy of Jim Reeves are only interested in what their association with Jim can do for them.
I have often wished I had the money of my own to preserve Jim's legacy, and even to get his music back on the radio. There are millions of people around the world who don't even know who he is. It would be nice if they could at least be exposed to his music to see if they like it.
Thank you Larry for what you and your wife do to keep Jim's memory alive. I appreciate this website too.
