Jerry entertains his relatives. At the family reunion at Aunt Lena's house, Daniel joins Jerry and they play "Donna" by Richie Valens. During this period Daniel and Jerry wrote a few simple love songs together. Daniel still has the lyrics and fingering writings. One song they co-wrote was, "Fly Trap". Others they played were: "Church Bells May Ring", Whispering Bells, and Everly Brothers songs.(1)
