Doug Edwards…

804 505 Ann Mortifee

My dear friend Doug Edwards has passed away. There are no words to say all that Doug meant to me and gave to my life. We worked together for many, many years and his influence on me and my music was there from the very beginning. He played numerous instruments with extraordinary skill, creative imagination and beauty. You can read the details of his life on the link below. Doug is at the far left in the photo. I just wanted to express my love and admiration for a man who gave so much to us all through his kind, quiet nature and his beautiful music. Wherever you are now, Doug, know that you are forever in my heart, in all that I am and all that I do . . . Travel well.
