Birds with different feathers* (in memory of Stephen Sondheim) by Ruth Esther Gilmore Each bird warbles another tune, birds with different feathers and with different hues, look all the same to an inexperienced eye. I will encourage all human beings, engaging together, to sing and dance to their each and every own tune, to piece together their own way of thinking unthinkable dreams. You and you, and me too, we are the birds of the future, we are the birds of the engaging worlds. *from the book "Engaging Worlds" (Geest-Verlag) by Ruth Esther Gilmore

May his memory be a blessing and may his family and friends find comfort in the knowledge that the world holds them in our collective hearts. His legacy is one that will enrich the lives of many who have yet to be born and perhaps encourage someone else to "finish the hat".

I admired and revered Mr. Sondheim's talent, he was incomparable, broadway has lost a luminescence and I for one, as in Follies, will dim my lights and think about him.
May his loved ones have the comfort of knowing he will never ever be forgotten.
My condolences to his Partner Mr. Romley and the broadway community.
With respect, Felipe Marrero, NYC.
