I was covering the 1982 Peace Rally in Central Park on behalf of Spectrum Magazine of the Unity in Diversity Council. I had already been friends with Peter Yarrow after meeting him while photographer for Los Angeles’ Songwriters Resources and Services (SRS which was part inspiration for my birthing V.A.R.I.O.U.S.). I had met him before PP&M recorded their first album when they were living (rehearsing) in Forest Hills.
Dear Peter and Paul,
My sincere condolences on the passing of your dear friend and bandmate. No denying now its the end of an era, but many of us (millions and millions) are remembering Mary fondly. Like myself, I will always be singing your songs of love, peace, politics and the land & life we live. May you find a third once more and carry on! Did mary have a daughter/singing sister? Do you know someone?
Aloha Nui Loa,
Peter H. Rosen
