Oh dear....only yesterday Sandy was in and out of Ken, Barry and Deb's conversations about their music at the seafest, if they haven't had enough. I have never met the Paton's, this place has brought me in touch with so many beautiful people and some, some, I haven't had time to meet, and it is too late. I know a lot of your friends will be devastated, I know them, i know them and I know it is little consolation to know that Caroline has many wonderful friends to help. Ken will be on his way home this morning. I think I am rambling now.
I am so sad for all the family and all Sandy's friends.

There are so many things I want to say...........and I can't seem to put any of them together right now. Others will have more and better......his life was so full and his impact so great.........The world owes him, the folk community owes him, Mudcat owes him, and I owe him.

I will never forget a line he wrote back in '99 when I was extremely ill. He, like so many others, rallied round and it surprised everyone I think at what a place Mudcat was becoming. He wrote, "My God, I've tears in my eyes for a man I've never met. This is what is meant by "community."

Indeed. And today my eyes are filled with tears as well.

Much Love to Caroline and the entire Paton family who have endured so much these past months. Thanks for sharing Sandy with us.

Sandy Paton's folk legacy will live on, and his contributions to our world, for a long, long time have been enormous. And he was the heart and soul of all of that. To think of all the lives that he and Caroline have touched over so many years one only has to look at the current or past Folk Legacy catalogs and then imagine all of those people who have listened over and over to these precious recordings. His work was great and he is already sorely missed. His sense of history and of the people he worked with and for must have been immense to have captured for the rest of us what we have in his legacy. His was a life for which one can be truly grateful.

One of the great blessings of going to Kaelan Paton's memorial service was that Ruth and I had a chance to visit with Sandy. It had been too long, and the visit was too short, but it meant a lot to us. It means much more, now. Last night, Barbara Carr posted an enigmatic message on Facebook that there was tragic news, without saying what it was. In my heart, I knew it was about Sandy passing.
It's hard to know how Caroline, David and Robin can deal with such a great loss so shortly after losing Kaelan, but I know they will. They are strong, good people. Most importantly, they are loved by many.

We send all our love and prayers.

I am so, so sorry. My prayers and thoughts are with Caroline and all your family this morning.

Looking out over a verdant, hot North Carolina morning, I am remembering a cold, cold evening in front of an unlit fireplace at Ramblewood, listening to Sandy and Kendall swap hobo songs, train songs, sad songs. Making each other tear up, no worries about tough and gruff; real men with real stories of real lives.

I didn't have the privilege many of you had to know him long and well, but that's how I thought of him, and looked up to him: a true man, and a gentleman through and through.

Sandy, when we meet again (When The Rolls Are Passed Up Yonder), I'll have that pot of greens ready for you, fatback and all.

I was just talking about Sandy on Saturday. I was on the radio and realized that I was playing a more than usual amount of Folk Legacy recordings. I commented that that was OK because Sandy and Caroline were 2 of the finest people I've ever met and that if Sandy every said "I was born almost 10,000 years ago" that I would believe him.

Sandy etched himself in my memory and my heart soon after meeting him, over 10 years ago. I heard him sing "My Old Man", at the Getaway, with so much emotion that he nearly couldn't get through the song. I couldn't forget that if I tried.

I still cherish the Folk Legacy ball cap he gave me, which some may see as just a ball cap, but a small gift from such a big man is my treasure.

So long Sandy and much love Caroline. You have both made a profound impact on me and the things I care deeply for in this world.

Where my words fail me, you can always count on Rick Fielding:

"Sing with the Angels"

    I'm gonna sing with the angels
    When my time comes around
    This earth is just rehearsal
    For when I'm heaven bound
    I'll be well prepared to take my place
    with harmony and rhyme
    And sing with the angels when it's time.


"When We Gather Once More,"

    Be well, be safe, be kind, be strong
    For the times will test us sore
    And to gladden our hearts,
    Our bodies, our souls
    Oh, be here when we gather once more.
    Oh, be here when we gather once more.

    Now if I find a resting place
    Before I'm back this way
    Or if the road be just too long
    And my feet have turned to clay
    If from tonight you do recall
    Just one line from this song
    Then even if our roads do end,
    This song will travel on.

Linn Schultz just shared the sad news on Facebook and I gasped aloud. Words fail at such a time, but the Paton family are in all our hearts and prayers, doubly so now at this dark time.

Sunset and evening star,
And one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the bar,
When I put out to sea,

Twilight and evening bell,
And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
When I embark;

But such a tide as moving seems asleep,
Too full for sound and foam,
When that which drew from out the boundless deep
Turns again home.

For tho' from out our bourne of Time and Place
The flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crossed the bar.

Subject: RE: Obit: Sandy Paton
From: bbc
Date: 27 Jul 09 - 09:05 AM

Good morning, folks,

We suspected that the news would filter out from Pinewoods first, since Sandy's granddaughter, Linnea, is working there this summer. Yesterday marked 40 days since Sandy & Caroline's grandson, Kaelan, drowned. Sandy had been deeply grieving, since that time. We had all been concerned about him, but it was unclear how much of his condition was emotional & how much was physical. Last week, with Kaelan's memorial & the burial of his remains past, Caroline felt that Sandy needed to see his doctor. I drove the two of them to the office on Thursday afternoon, July 23rd. Sandy was unusually fatigued & was having wide variations in his blood oxygen with any activity. As soon as he saw him, Sandy's doctor called for an ambulance to take his to nearby Sharon Hospital (Sharon, CT) for observation. Sandy was checked into a room, after being observed in Emergency, & Caroline was told they'd like to keep Sandy for a few days. If I am remembering correctly what Caroline told me, the hospital called Saturday evening & said that Sandy wasn't doing well & they didn't know if he'd make it through the night. The family was able to go to the hospital that evening & spend time with Sandy. During the night, Saturday, he lost consciousness. During the day, on Sunday, family was in & out. Duane & I visited for a couple of hours in the early afternoon & said our goodbyes. When we returned for a second visit at about 7 pm, not wanting Sandy to be alone, his sister-in-law, Linda, gave us the news that he had passed from this life about a half hour earlier, at 6:32 pm on Sunday, July 26, 2009. We waited for Caroline to come & stayed with the family until they left. Sandy died peacefully, with no heroics, just lightly breathing until he drew his last breath. The cause will probably be listed as congestive heart failure. My first thought, when I heard that he was gone, was happiness for him. In recent times, his life had become more & more of a burden to him. Because of his emphasema, he had to be connected to oxygen all the time. His movements & activities were limited. Changes in his voice meant that he was no longer able to sing &, sometimes, even to make himself easily heard. He was broken-hearted over Kaelan's death. I feel sure that Sandy was content to leave.

Now, we pick up the pieces of life without him. Caroline has her two sons & her sister, all of whom live locally. She, also, has Duane & me. Together, we will be giving personal support & helping to get Folk Legacy onto a new chapter. Your support is needed. Although I have more that I'd like to say, I'll end this, for now, to give you the basic information. Since phone is the only way Caroline can conduct business, I might suggest that you send condolences by mail, for now, to give us time to get up-to-date on the backlog of orders, due to Kaelan's death & Sandy's health. As is the family custom, Sandy's passing will be marked by a memorial gathering at some time in the future. Sing your songs for him, folks! A great man has passed.

I knew Sandy has not been well these last few years, and especially not in the last year. But somehow, still, this seems so sudden. And after all that the Paton family has been through, this loss seems like just too much.

Sandy did more than any other person to create the music that I have known and loved my entire life. I grew up, like others in my generation and after, on Folk Legacy records. Today, a significant portion of the albums in my LP collection are the familiar black sleeves with the photographs on front. Sandy gave us the music of Gordon Bok and Rosalie Sorrels and Bill Staines and Jonathan Eberhart and Helen Schneyer and Joe Hickerson and Cindy Kallet and Kendall Morse and Frank Proffitt and Hobart Smith and Archie Fisher and Ed Trickett and so many others. This is a monumental loss to the folk music community and to music at large.

As I child I used to be intimidated by Sandy, because I knew who he was and because he was big and had a booming voice - and as an adult I learned that he was one of the sweetest, kindest, most sensitive people you could ever meet. Just yesterday my two year old and I were singing one of his kids' songs.

I had always hoped to see Sandy and Caroline named National Heritage Fellows - they deserved it as much as any. I'm only sorry it never happened.

I am more sad than words can say.

Dan

Oh, two things I meant to include on my previous post--If you didn't know Sandy personally, you might like to read a great bio
that Ron Olesko wrote, in honor of Sandy's birthday a couple of years ago. Also, I posted a picture of Sandy, taken at the Paton family reunion, on my flickr page yesterday. After listening to Folk Legacy recordings for years, Duane & I came to our personal relationship with the Patons through Mudcat. In the past 10 years or so, we have come, step by step, closer, until we feel like part of the Folk Legacy family. Many of you are children of Folk Legacy, too, & will be grieving the passing of this icon of traditional music.

Sandy was truly a giant in our music and life in general for that matter; I'll miss him and add him to my list of those I should have gotten to know better. His influence and legacy will continue, no question of that.

I met The Patons in 1972 when Utah Phillips dragged me down to Sharon Connecticut to hear Jim Ringer record his 1st album. Spent 4 or 5 days there listening, drinking and teaching Ringer my song BILL PICKETT. Drank up a goodly amount of Sandys' single malt that weekend. It's a shame that too many good people have to go too soon. I always looked forward to seeing Sandy whenever I could make it to Old Songs. He will be missed. My condolences to Caroline and the rest of the family.
