Subject: RE: Obit: Evelyn Beers Burnstine (Fox Hollow)
Marty, Our thoughts are with you. I was a Hoosac student and remember the times Bob and Evelyn would come down for the evening to share their music, sometimes accompanied by you and Eric. I particularly remember NY public TV doing a live recording with Bob and friends in front of the massive fireplace in the Dining Hall....a particularly funny evening with Bob telling stories and singing un-airable verses between takes while Evelyn told Bob stories in the background with her usual charm, grace and wit. Perhaps most of all, I recall Edith Craig Reynolds describing the joy she received from hearing the carol Bob and Evelyn dedicated to her, a wonderful tribute to a remarkable soul. Aside from the many memories and sounds, the grace which Bob and Evelyn shared was profound and touched many people. May they both now share pleasant journeys again. Be at peace and thank you for sharing.
