Goodbye Mary!



November 9, 1936 - September 17, 2009

Peter, Paul, and Mary were as much a part of my early childhood as learning to read, watching Bonanza, and (dangerously) building forts in the woods with my older brothers.

My mom used to listen to them constantly. Some of the first words I knew were lyrics from one of their songs. And they are impossibly entwined with all the happy and carefree feelings of being five.

She will be missed.

Aww :( I need to listen to my Peter Paul and Mary vinyl today as a tribute to her memory. RIP.

Millie said...

Kate: Thanks!

Austin: I know. I think I'll put a P P& M song in my playlist.

Thanks for your comment!

It's always interesting to find other people who have been listening to them since childhood!
