Thread Name: Rick Fielding's passing. (March 20, 2004)
Subject: RE: Rick Fielding's passing.
I'm so sorry to hear about Rick. Kept hoping it was not true and wishing he was secretly getting better. May you take comfort in knowing how many of us mourn with you. He was a wonderful man and together you were a wonderful couple. I will treasure the memories of your two visits to our house in Branford and remember the joy of those jams and those hilarious conversations over pancake breakfasts.
The next few months will be difficult for you, but time of course makes it easier, despite how it may feel today. Life is hard for the living, and we can only be grateful that Rick's trials are over. No one knows what happens in the next stage, so we carry on and rejoice in the legacy our loved ones have left behind.
Rick left a "lifetime's worth of song" as he said in his Sing With The Angels. We can continue to hear his beautiful voice and musicianship in his recordings and even hear his voice in the postings that Mudcat has recorded for posterity.
Comfort and love to you.
Barbara and Frank
