It is with a heavy heart that I post this. Leo passed away last night. He'd been dealing with pulmonary hypertension, but was at home last I'd heard from him. I don't have the full details, but I'm sure someone can supply them as they become available.

I have so many thoughts and memories going through my head right now, it will take a day or two to sort out anything coherent to post on his loss.

Leo and I started in Mudcat about the same time many years ago. He was from a town in the Finger Lakes
not far from where I live in Central New York State. He was a street performer in the Dickens Christmas in Skaneateles, NY and at The Sterling Renaissance Faire in Sterling NY. His skill as a crochet artist is legendary. He recording a song of mine years ago and I always appreciated the version he performed. He was a friendly and generous man.

I met Leo at the King Richard's Faire outside of Boston in the US. My duo's set was scheduled opposite of the ever-popular joust, and all the customers flocked to see that, not us. In fact Leo was our only listener. But listen he did, and talked with us after the set. A kind man, to be sure.

It is getting so hard to look at Mudcat, for I always see a death notice for someone I knew or knew of. I hadn't seen any posts from MMario in some time, but I quite often thought about him. When I was a relative newcomer to Mudcat and was posting quite a lot of lyrics, I used to send copies of sheet music to Leo, who was most obliging and would post the digital version of the tunes on Mudcat. His legacy lives on.

I'm heartbroken, too. I cherish a shawl he made, that Katlaughing organized as a gift for me when my beloved Byron died. That Spring, MMario met me and greeted me in song as I stepped off the shuttle bus to attend the Vermont Ren Fest- I can still see his hand extended to help me down, and his sweet voice as he escorted me to the fair. Go well, good man.

We cooked auroch together in the Mudcat Tavern, we compared notes on knitting ( although that was a lot like a 3 year old talking to god). I was one of the earliest recipients of a beautiful hand knitted shawl. It turned up all the way from the States from someone I had never, at that time,met and arrived exactly when I most needed it to.   It meant the world to me. So did he.

From: Jeri
Date: 29 Dec 18 - 05:22 PM

The last time I saw him, was, I believe, at the last Old Songs Festival I went to. Maybe 3 or 4 years ago. I can't remember if he was at the last Getaway I attended.
He seemed to be one of those folks everyone at Mudcat wanted to meet. He had the most amazing, thick mane of long, brown hair, and a huge voice. The knitting needles went everywhere with him.
He knitted a shawl for Heather Fielding when Rick died in 2004, and knitted one for me.

I started a song a long time ago, and never finished it. MMario started a Mudcat trend: making shawls for people who needed them. JacquiC has continued this, and there may have been others I missed. This is why many of us talk about Mudcat as more than a website, and more than just fighting. MMario swam deep in the currents here, and they swam in him.

So this is for him.

THE SHAWLMAKER

Sometimes the world is a terrible place
Misfortune can wear away love and faith
And you feel that there's nothing that you can do
But the shawlmaker knows that's not true

A shawl's an embrace that hands can crochet
It's a craft, not an art, many people would say
But art is a soul's thought, spoken by hands
And the shawlmaker's soul's in each one of those strands

For the shawlmaker knows that grief and despair
Are borne of a love that will always be there
When there's nought we can do, and little to say
The shawlmaker knows there's a way

Vulnerable love, tender and raw
Fragile, it waits for a cold world to thaw
The soul of a child, cloaked in older skin
The shawl reaches through to the dreamer within

The shawlmaker's work is more than it seems
The yarn is the stuff of wishes and dreams
There's compassion and love in each delicate strand
Touched by the shawlmaker's hand

I'm saddened and shocked to see that MMario has gone.

As Jeri said above, "This is why many of us talk about Mudcat as more than a website, and more than just fighting. MMario swam deep in the currents here, and they swam in him."

He was part of the fabric of this community.

Thanks for the lovely poem, Jeri. You have reminded me that when I crochet or knit or make something or paint something for someone else, I am usually in a sort of meditative or prayer-like state, thinking good thoughts about that person. So the gift of a shawl from MMario, it seems to me, is as much a gift of his caring, creative and giving soul as it is of a comforting item made of yarn.

Rest in Peace, Leo.

KT, no, I never felt I could finish it, but maybe I'll put some work into it.

MMario didn't crochet, but I think crocheting is just sideways knitting. It's all yarnwork, though, and making beautiful things.

MMario led the effort to get as many tunes for songs in the Digital Tradition as we could manage. He was somebody nobody - and I mean nobody - ever had a negative word to say about.

It has taken me all day to come up with words to post, and they still won't be everything I want to say.

Leo was always the first person I'd look for when I arrived t Getaway. We'd do the chitchat thing, he'd ask me how I was doing, and one year, he let me finish blathering on and then said : "OK, now how are you REALLY doing?" I think it was the year I helped remove my mother from an abusive relationship. Whatever. He knew I had the happy face on and that wasn't what he wanted to know about.

I remember one year he was knitting tiny little sweater sets for a grand niece the whole Getaway. The love for that child shone all over him while he was knitting them. And the year he sang "Lullaby For a Borrowed Child", a song he'd written. And the warm hugs, good conversation, wicked humor, and beautiful voice. The two of us swapping stupid tourist stories - he grew up on Cape Cod, and I grew up on the coast of Maine - and the things we'd do to the obnoxious ones. It's amazing how much fun you can have "giving" directions to annoying tourists.

Most of all, what I I will remember about Leo is his warmth and kindness.

Oh, and Jeri - He was at the last Getaway you were at. That's the one you, Tinker, myself, and Janet shared a room. And you, Tinker and I were walking to the Retreat Center and Leo looked up, saw us and said something like "Well here's trouble!" and then when I informed him we were sharing a room, he remarked "I'm surprised the cabin hasn't burst into flames yet."

I'd forgotten the Lullaby For A Borrowed Child. Now I can hear him singing it in my head. What a sweet, lovely great heart he had. I hope I told him so.

Mmario was one of the people who tied me to the mudcat, and then to the Getaway. He inspired me with his courage and his joie de vivre.

MMario was behind the scenes on that Mudcat Lullaby CD produced when Max's daughter Lily was born. We emailed back and forth on the files and the disks were produced on campus where I was working. There were never any glitches, he had everything the way it needed to be for those CDs to be produced. That's a rare thing. It was called the Blue Plate Special.

He was my Santee early on in the annual Mudcat Secret Santa events, and that year my kids and I chose fabrics and I made a lap quilt that we put in the mail to him. That was the only year that I made something like that, but it seemed entirely appropriate, making it for someone who felt like Mudcat royalty, by his demeanor and not by position. There was another year when I won the MMario shawl in the Mudcat Auction and it was the Secret Santa gift I sent to another Mudcatter that year. What a prize! It was clear to all that he was a lovely man and I only wish I'd had a chance to meet him and to see that garden he was so pleased to share with us over the years.

Shattered.
So many rich memories.
He’d greet me with a hug that lifted me off the ground.
He never minded me following him around like a puppy, eagerly awaiting songs.
He adored all his nieces and nephews; it broke my heart a bit that they and many more were all borrowed’ children.
On arrival at King Richard’s Faire, the first thing he would do is get a rose for Baz’ memorial; when I was there he’d get two, one for her, one for me. I still have last October’s; yellow.
Every Getaway he’d find/make time for a private concert; said my insatiable hunger for his singing was good for his ego. I don’t think he had an ego.
I have never known a more gentle, giving, loving soul.
He created, and gave, gentleness and beauty day in and day out.
So many of us are better for having known him.

Welcome to Mudcat, Jan and Lauri.

You have our deepest sympathy in your loss of Leo.

It's difficult to convey the community feeling here at Mudcat, but I think that the outpouring of love for Leo/MMario shows how we feel, not just about him but about the whole Mudcat experience.

I have been a member of Mudcat for over 20 years. I am in Australia so I never met Leo in person, and have only met a very few members of the Mudcat community, but the friendship, love, sharing and support is strong.

Leo kindly came a long way to attend my husband Greg's retirement dinner just a few weeks ago, and never spoke of any health issues. He was full of life, good spirits, and love, and we planned to connect more often now that we were finally about to join him in retired life.

We were chosen siblings.... our new Ohio home has a big annual Ren Faire a half hour away... we planned on long annual visits.

Greg has gone to bed in prep for his final liturgies tomorrow and the new friends Leo made at Greg's dinner will join in our sorrow... he was, like us, Episcopal, and the liturgies planned for tomorrow are exactly the sort he'd have loved.

If anyone has contact info for Sue, please PM it to me ASAP.
