Fenno and SLOT 11/22/08 Heath Thanksgiving VIDEO

Click on this video to see the S.L.O.T. members who came to serenade Fenno and the Heath Family on Saturday Nov. 22, 2008 at Whitney Center in the private conference room affair.
S.L.O.T. members took time to tell some stories about Dad and to share in the joy of music making with him once again. DEAR friends, after all these years, 58 years, maybe 60 years, of being dedicated and dear friends of Dad's and of Mom's. The Heath Family watched in reverence as Dad gave a wonderful speech of gratitude for S.L.O.T.'s friendship and also as he stood up and sang the Whiffenpoof song with two S.L.O.T. members, one on each side of him, holding him up physically, spiritually, and in song. It was a touching moment, not to be forgotten. Enjoy this short video. The first clip is of the song "I Love the Ladies" and then onto Dad's speech, and then his standing up to sing with his boys. He said, "There's too much talking and not enough singing." We got teary eyed.

  1. this little video shows just how far one can go, singing "Mavorneen, and the rest..."

    Thanks to Sedgwick Hunter Ogilvy, for knowing a touching moment when she sees one, and for capturing it carefully with her little handheld camera.
