I want to tell the organizers and everyone that attended Sandy;s memorial service tonite, that I am very sorry I could not attend.,.
I have been battling a stomach virus all weekend and today was the worst day. I wanted to spare all that attended my germs!!!!
I am,however very sad at the loss of a fantastic musician and great friend. Sandy was sure a pioneer for women in jazz and I thank her for that.
I know wherever she goes, she will carry on a legacy of truly talented singers and musicians of all genders, just as she left a "little somethin-somethin" here on Earth.
Sandy, I will miss you!
