Thread Name: Jean Ritchie update Sept 2011
Subject: RE: Jean Ritchie update June 2011
What a lovely afternoon I have just had with our Jean and son Jon. And I am elated to tell you she is doing VERY well. I walked in the door and was greeted by those beautiful twinkling eyes, gorgeous smile, and big hug. For those of you who know Jean, let me assure you that she is doing great. She is in a wheelchair for the time being due to a hip break, but other than that she is great. We had coffee and banana bread fresh baked by my wife, and then we swapped songs for a bit. She and Jon did several together, and she harmonized on several of mine. She did tire after a bit, but it was, simply put, a wonderful time with this grand lady and friend. It put my mind at ease. Jon is in fine voice and it was a joy listening to his songs and jokes. And he an do a passable SE Ireland brogue. ***chuckle***

All the best,
