In Memory of Christine Garrrott --- May 2017

 

  In January, we sang to Christine .our first director, over the phone. Now living in Florida she was battling cancer.
  
  Here is her response:

I wanted to share this with you all as a testament to the love and support from old friends. Monday night, I received a call from Mandy Jones, who is a member of Freedom Valley Chorus in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. I had the honor of being FVC's director during the very beginning of their time together, and I have so many happy memories...not the least of which was directing them at Regional Contest before they had even gained their charter. We were all so excited...and even more so when we received word from the Regional Management Team that we had been passed for our Charter as a result of that performance. That was a long time ago. However, they chose to call me and gift me with a performance of "You'll Never Walk Alone" in honor of my journey, and with love and prayers that I will remain well for a long time to come. Suddenly, I found myself back in front of them, and the tears came quickly. How do you say thank you for such a precious gift? I can't even express it. This, dear friends, is the definition of caring. To all my Sisters in Song at Freedom Valley, God bless you, each and every one. Love always, Christine Garrott.

 

Thank you, Christine      Rest in peace.

 

Your Sisters in Song. n
