Yes, friends and fans, here it is. Post 1,000!
I've been trying to think what would be appropriate for such a momentous occasion, and decided that I'd wait and see what the day brought to me. And it just arrived, in the form of an e-mail from Tennyson's mom with a link to a memorial to him that she and his dad put in the Lawrence, Kansas Journal-World:
Even after one year, Tennyson, our hearts break and we gasp at the thought of your passing, and we continue to mourn. We pine for you immensely: your voice, your love; your humor and your wit! The world lost a wonderful person on July 5, 2007.
You may rest in peace, however, assured that neither your Daughter, your Mother, your Father, nor your Brother has forgotten you. Neither has the Red Lefty band. And neither have your many other Friends and Relatives, We all remember you through tears and heartache, and we shall miss you forever.
MOM AND POPS
And here's a brand new picture of him, one I've never seen before, from a CD I just got in yesterday's mail. No coincidence, I'm sure. It's the back side of a German-produced CD of a band he was in in the mid-90's called Polio. I think I heard them play once. Tennyson's in the middle, on top...dimple in chin.
I miss you, my friend, but I also know you are always with me.
Love, Mary Beth
