Rest in Peace, Mary Travers (1936-2009)
Mary Travers, of the 1960s folk trio Peter, Paul and Mary, died yesterday, in Connecticut.
After successful recovery from leukemia through a bone marrow/stem cell transplant, Mary succumbed to the side effects of one of the chemotherapy treatments. We all loved her deeply and will miss her beyond words. [Peter, Paul and Mary website].
I felt the need to hear her voice again. To hear them all again, together.
I never met her but I feel like I've lost a longtime, dear, dear friend.
Thank you so much, Mary, for the memories:
Blowin' in the Wind
Puff, the Magic Dragon
If I Had a Hammer
Early Mornin' Rain
Rest in Peace, Mary.
You will be missed.
