RIP Marnie

February 8, 2007 at 11:27 AM

Greetings,
Marnie Bradbury came to Japan three years ago to teach English for my company, working in Elementary schools. This week she died in a traffic accident.
Her parents are here now to take her home.
I would like to ask all my friends on Violinist.com to send a message of condolence and compassion to he parents by picking up the instrument we all love so much and playing something no matter how brief, for them, her students and co-workers.
I know her parents will read this and perhaps draw a little comfort from such a gesture made across so many borders.
Many thanks,
Buri

Buri, my sincere condolences to you as her friend and to Marnie's parents. Being the mediocre, beginning violist that I am, I will dedicate something from Suzuki Bk2 to Marnie's memory when I practice a bit later this evening.
