“Pete, it was such an honor to be a part of your Walkabout Chorus and to sing with you, to you. May your light, love linger forever oer this planet and all those millions who sorely sorely miss you! brightest blessings magical man!
“Rest Pete, until you hear at dawn,
the low, clear reveille of God.
Thank you for your service to this nation.
“I finagled my way in to the RR Hall of fame a few years ago to see you. Tickets were sold out. I had to do some fast talking get in!! Rest in Peace.
“You are always with me- as I read the news, appalled at our loss of democracy, but determined to live on- YOU ARE HERE- as long as I breathe.
“While teaching with the Urban Teachers Corps in The D.C. Public Schools in 1968-1969, I used one of Pete Seeger's songs with my class as it told about the urban area problems that residents faced. It was a theme for my SE Washington class and instrumental for discussion of living in a poor area of the city.
“To the family,
Pete was one of my heroes and I have two pictures of him on my bedroom walls, one of them just above my bed. When I can't get to sleep at night, I sometimes imagine that he's singing "Turn, Turn, Turn" to me. May he be forever an inspiration to many people.
“Pete Seeger's music transcended all races, ages, people, and tongues. Its message of peace and justice for all remained pertinent and powerful throughout his life. May the promise of a peaceful and just world soon become our reality, and it is my desire that Pete and I will be fortunate enough to see it.
