Subject: RE: Obit: Jean Ritchie (1922-2015)
So sorry to hear of her passing; what a lovely lady, as was her dear husband and son. For many years I attended the parties she hosted when she lived in Port Washington, Long Island;   the music was superb; and she was as gracious and open a person as one could hope to meet; never held herself up as better than anyone. Her husband George was equally modest, tho he was a photographer of national renown; and Jon, of course, was welcoming and kind. Some of the best times I've ever had, and it was all because of the fine spirit of this woman and her loving family.

A dear dear lady, may she be blessed in heaven.
