Friday Daily Goodbye

John Anczarski, 19, was a member of "The Pink Pedal," a charity group riding bicycles across the country to raise money for breast cancer research.

A University of Colorado engineering student, Mr. Anczarski and three friends had already raised thousands of dollars in their trek from Pennsylvania to California.

According to the Associated Press: Prescott S. Bush Jr., brother to one U.S. president and uncle to another, has died at age 87.

"Jo Jo Billingsley," was a back up singer with the "Sweet Home Alabama" band Lynyrd Skynyrd. She toured with the group for three and half years before leaving in August 1977.

The group asked to have her back two months later but she told the band she'd had a dream that they would die in an airplane crash.

On Oct. 20. the band's plane ran out of fuel and crashed in Mississippi, killing the lead singer, Ronnie Van Zant.
