28 January 2014   “So long, pal sure gets lonesome here
          Cassi Creek:  Pete Seeger died yesterday at age 94. 

          One of the earliest folk singers I came to hold in highest regard, he spent his life using music to make people happy, to help initiate social changes, and to point the way toward celebrating the commonality of humanity that is resident in song. 
          I don’t believe we’ll ever see his match. 
          The best way to remember Pete is by keeping his songs alive. So today, I’ve linked a few of my favorites.

The world is now a quieter, less caring, less concerned for others place.  He will be missed by millions who have heard his voice and joined theirs with his. 
I can only say, so long, Pete, it’s been good to know you.
