With the sad news of the death of Mary Travers a member of the popular American folk singing trio Peter, Paul & Mary, I feel a little bit of me died today. Growing up in the 1960s there songs made a deep impression on me and clearly millions of others on our little planet. Their songs were perfect, beautiful, you could understand each word unlike the trash you hear so often that passes for song music today.

She had bravely fought leukemia and she was recovering instead her chemotherapy treatment led to her death.

May she rest in peace, she will always be remembered by those of us who were there.
