This email is out of the ordinary realm of band news. Usually at this time I announce our board meeting date and send news about our upcoming season. Be assured that Dave, the board and I will meet soon and I will fill you in with rehearsal and concert dates and times as soon as that happens.
Some of you who frequent “Facebook” may be aware, but for others without Facebook, or if you have not heard, it is with a truly heavy heart that I share with you that that Danny Rich, age 20 who played percussion with us for a few seasons has passed away. Details about his passing or any services are not known at this writing, but as soon as I learn more, I will pass any info I get along to all of you.
I would like to share with all of you that to me Danny was a cheerful, helpful and polite member of our band. I am deeply saddened and shocked at the news. Danny was a good friend of Ginny, Arlene, Bob and other “members of the cul de sac” and the rest of the band. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. As I grow older the questions multiply. There are so many questions and no answers. It is said that “Goodbyes hurt the most when the story was not finished”….
As I mentioned earlier if there is any more news, I will pass it along, however Ginny and I will be out of town this weekend.
If I hear anything this weekend, I’ll share it with Pam and she will send it out to the group, as I can do the BCCband group emails from my home PC and not with my phone.
Yours truly, Joe
