Subject: RE: Obit: Evelyn Beers Burnstine (Fox Hollow)
Marty, I am sorry for your loss. My family was family friends of your aunt and uncle and cousins the Boyers. They got us to Fox Hollow, and I was there for seven or eight years as a child. It was a profoundly good experience for me, and still defines my life to this day.
The last time I saw her was at NEFFA maybe 20 years ago as a young adult. She remembered me, and it was a very sweet connection. My fondest memory was her helping my mother (as I remember it) make a costume for me for what I believe was a renaissance festival that happened there before fox hollow the summer my mother and I spent a month there when I was six. Knickers, floppy hat, jacket I think... All brown. Very special times, special music, specialb people...
