Erika, please accept my sympathy and condolences. I am so sorry for your loss. |
What "Paw" gave to this PP&M Coffeehouse is beyond words...and he will be sorely missed.
I remember posting about wanting to make "Paw" a KINGSTON TRIO fan too, but he stood strong and steady in his belief:
PETER, PAUL & MARY ruled the Planet....
and any other folk trios would have to take a back seat, including THE KINGSTON TRIO.
Our late legendary Montreal poet & songwriter LEONARD COHEN once said that when somebody dies,
they leave us with precious MEMORIES to behold... but also leave their SPIRIT too.
It's as if their SPIRIT enters us completely.
In a strange way, the person isn't going away.... or saying "Goodbye" at all....
>>> but saying "Hello".
What "Paw" gave to you, Erika, and what he brought to this "Coffeehouse", we will carry for the rest of our lives.
And what it comes down to, as LEONARD COHEN was saying....
The person who has departed will be with us in spirit and will be trying to say: "Hello".
And we're going to say "Hello" right back.
>>> Hello Paw <<<
And Thank You for being part of our life.
We're going to miss you.
We're going to miss you a lot. :>(
ps: Again, my sympathies & condolences to you, Erika, and to your family too. I liked "Paw" and enjoyed his posts immensely.
Anytime I listen to PETER, PAUL & MARY sing, I'll be saying "Hello" to your Dad.
