I write this with a heavy heart. My last two weeks have been spent with my uncle, Frank Glazer, who died Jan. 13 at the age of 99 in hospice care in Maine. Frank was a remarkable concert pianist, teacher, WWII veteran and professor of piano at Bates College. He gave the Carnegie Hall premieres of works by Stravinsky and Copland. He played as soloist with major symphonies all over the world. He still performed and taught and had an extraordinary program planned for a series of concerts in four states to celebrate his 100th birthday which would have been next month. We were blessed to have the support of Mid Coast Hospital in Brunswick, ME, which was well-equipped and trained to shift him to hospice care and help us make his departure so comfortable and affirming. Click here for one of the stories about him.
So please forgive me if I can't respond to your technical questions for the next few weeks. I have finally gotten a bit of sleep but my spirit needs a bit of time. Janet can help.
