Dear Dancin' Friends,

Here's news that brought a tear to my eye.
An energetic Japanese lady named Peggy, whom I often danced with at the Kent dances, has passed away due to COVID-19. The afternoon and evening Kent dances draw largely different crowds, but she was a regular at both. She could follow even my weirdest leads, and was extra fun to dance with because of her spontaneity and enthusiasm ... a real Energizer Bunny. She was also a hula dancer and liked to sing ... Randy Litch sometimes played guitar while she sang Could I Have This Dance on the mic. She sometimes brought me homemade goodies when I DJ'd there. I miss dancing ... I haven't been to the Kent dances for a few months now and of course they are cancelled for the time being ... and I will miss Peggy.

Let this be a reminder that we should be careful, not fearful. It's important to me to balance sad news with plans for better times, and memories of past joys. So come with me now on a ...
