Ferrara Obit: Dick Rodgers, FSGW Institution (May 2008) (124* d) RE: Obit: Dick Rodgers, FSGW Institution (May 2008 15 Jun 08

Janie and Dan, thank you for the kind words.

Last night's memorial evening was wonderful. The room looked great.   The food was good. Vince and Andrew set up a fine looking table with three photo boards. I added 11 pages of comments and stories about Dick from this thread and a number of people seemed to be reading them all the way through.

The singing and sharing were just what one hopes for, from Bill D's rendition of "The Good Boy [Loved But Unrespected]" to Sondra Wallace's singing of "Lonesome Robin" to Gail Snyder's hilariously appropriate song, "You Can't Keep Me From Singing." Among many other highlights were Barry Schlesinger singing "The Ballad of Tom Joad," which Dick used to sing, Kathie Mack bringing the whole room alive with harmony on "Who Will Sing For Me," and several songs from Dick's former music group, The Cathedral Avenue Cacaphony.

A splendid send-off. Dick would have been so pleased.
