It's more than singing..


I am so glad I got to sing with you again in later years – at YGC reunions and in DC. I am not one of your musical accomplishments--though I sang in an a cappella group with Bill Flanders and Jon McBride here in DC. I do the church choir and I’ve have been in a few chorales and YAC. All that I owe to you, having let me be my raucous self and blossom on our Europe ’63 tour, or as a YGC soloist who was not afraid to be loud and fake a Hungarian dance in Woolsey Hall.

I never managed your elegance, your style, or your musicianship. But you have indeed been a “Mother of Men.” You taught me and all of us leadership and grace under fire, and persistence, and attention to detail, and bravura -- even if we did not feel it. I have tried to turn those gifts you gave so freely to the works of peace and our fragile planet. That is my song. I learned it from you and I bless you for it. Our songs, sung for you, will last as long as a Fenno final chord – that is, forever. Go in peace.
