Editors, Vineyard Gazette:

We always think of success as being an achievement to some higher status, but Bob Lee fought for his place in the world from the very beginning, his achievement was life itself. We will miss his warm smile, wit and intellect, his musical knowledge and joie de vie. This was his heart home, he belonged, he was one of us and he will be missed by so very many.

Peace, my friend.

Wendy Arnell Brophy, Vineyard Haven

from our birth
on this Earth
our hearts drum
as though One
with profound percussion
we live, we work, we love
swim under sun above
we play music; have fun
one day, sadly, we succumb
