Thread Name: Happy Birthday kytrad-Jean Ritchie Dec 8
Subject: BS: Happy Birthday Jean Ritchie 12/8
I wanted to be the first to wish Jean (kytrad) a most wonderful happy birthday. The words I want to say are not all together in my head so I will post more later. I can say that Jean came into my life when I was 6 years old. I found a 10 inch record of hers in a library and played it over and over and over. How I wish I could find that record again. Jean is the reason traditional music is my first love and the only thing that has been consistent throughout my life.

So, Happy Birthday Jean. You, your music and your kindness and gentleness will live in my heart forever. Thank you for all you have given to me and all the others whose lives you have touched. I am a better person because of you. May your life continue to be filled with the music you love.

Much love,
karen kobela
