GUEST,silver Obit: Pete Seeger (1919-2014) (220* d) RE: Obit: Pete Seeger (1919-2014) 29 Jan 14

It's sad that we have lost Pete, but what a legacy he left us! I heartily agree with all the praise above.
I never met him, but he was kind enough to answer my letters several times. Imagine that! A world-famous man humble enough to answer fan mail in person, by hand! He must have spent a fortune on postage stamps.
The first time he wrote, it was on a piece of brown paper with a pressed autumn leaf glued to it. (Maybe Toshi helped him with that.) Simple, but thoughtful. I think of him as the best teacher I ever had.
Thanks, Pete, Precious Friend! "You gave me hope, not just the old soft soap".
