GUEST,Patrick Obit: Derroll Adams (1925-2000) (39) RE: Derroll Adams 16 Feb 00

Thank you, dear Frank - and you too, Suzanne - for what you wrote about Derroll. It's good to knowthat dear Derroll is not forgotten... on the other side of the Atlantic. A lot of friends came to Antwerp for the funeral (Thursday 10 Feb.). The ceremony was incredibly beautiful, warm and touching, yet occuring in the greatest simplicity. Some good old buddys of Derroll played and sang for him. The funeral hall was a vast place, full of people and filled with love and affection for our friend. Once more, Derroll's immense capacity of bringing people together in a unique and perfect communion was present, among us, and worked wonders.

Suzanne: there is another nice song about Derroll that was written and sung by Wizz Jones: "The Man with the Banjo" ("The Village Thing Tapes", Wundertüte Musik, 1992 - CD TÜT 72.157). That makes at least six songs composed about Derroll Adams... which is quite exeptional. But finally normal... considering that he was such an exeptional person.
