10 days ago, November 13th was my late husband, the very reason that I started the BigSkyJazz news, Kelly Roberti’s birthday. He’s been missed by so many. His music, sharp and wicked sense of humor, culinary skills, knowledge of history and cultures, honesty, and his word-smith way of expressions.
And last Friday, November 19th is the birthdate of my amazing sister Yuka, Kelly’s wonderful mother MaryLee!! Also the same date was my husband Bob’s late wife Sandra’s mother Shirley’s birthday.
Much gratitude for all the beautiful lives who have been part of my life.
