This has been an incredible past few days with the loss of a number of family friends who’ve lost loved ones.
The Family of Ann Foley-Schoenwald: I went to Elwood schools and graduated with Annie’s older sister, Loris Foley, and knew their entire family.
The Savage Family of Elwood: this past weekend, Bill Savage lost his 10 year old grandson, Levi. The Savage family is distantly related to my family. With Levi’s parents, David & Jessica Nance Savage have families that extend to dear family friends in the Peel family and also the Nance family.
My Ball State University music department friend, Laurie Kenney Girardot, lost her husband, Mike, Monday night.
Musical theatre sweetheart, Tally Sessions, lost his beautiful mama Tuesday morning.
Susan Ogden-Hill, my saxophone buddy from 7th grade through high school graduation, lost her mother, Cathy Kilgore-Ogden, early this morning. Mrs. Ogden was one of my favorites and had gone to school with my parents.
Sending tons of love and air-hugs to each of you who’ve know loss these past several days…
