Subject: RE: Ritchie/Pickow Family News
My father, who would have been 95 on Mon, died this summer. I did a tribute to both him and you at a performance this summer; I remember him talking about trade unions with a guest at your picnic who had sung Solidarity Forever, so I worked out an accompaniament on Appalachian dulcimer and explained how important you were in bringing this instrument to a wider audience.

I see you started this thread on George's birthday. I'm glad we had a chance to meet him.
