Tuesday Dec. 2

Fenno is still with us, although it will only be a day or two now.........He is resting very peacefully.
We have been playing CDs of his compositions for him and it's been extremely touching to hear his beautiful music at this time, as you can only imagine. We have a lovely 3 foot Christmas tree lit in his room and it's a very calm, warm, cozy, loving, family environment. Sitting with him, listening to his music.......it's overwhelming, to say the least. He is a beautiful soul.

  1. Every day brings more and more memories. This one is peaceful, and full of gentle music in Fenno's room.
    We believe he can hear it.

    With incredible gratitude to Fenno and all that he taught me, I write to confess that "Didn't My Lord Deliver Daniel" has been in my head since Thanksgiving, and I've been singing it to myself hundreds of times in these past weeks. I know that deliverance can take several forms, and I am grateful to read about your wonderful family, Fenno, around you and filling your days with love as you prepare for your deliverance.

    I cherished my year in the Glee Club, the year after I sang in Whim 'n Rhythm and finished up my Senior Year. Fenno, you were powerful and funny and brilliant. I remember one day you stopped our rehearsal to tell us that a satellite had crashed and the astronauts had perished. You knew about death then, and you taught us about tragedy and living despite it. You had us make the most beautiful music to honor the dead.

    I will always remember you.
    Thank you.
