For Margot

Tuesday night was the memorial For Margot and it was a really nice event. The family was definitely surrounded by people who truly cared and were affected by this sweet child. Maybe it was a coincidence but as soon as the ceremony started, the sky opened up and a fairly massive storm came over the Kessler Theatre and stopped pouring as the ceremony finished. I like to think that the Heavens were crying the exact same time as everybody else.

A lot of excellent, local musicians were present to serenade Margot's memory and despite the somber attitude, their acoustic set was really well done. It felt personal, it felt real. Very few words were spoken at the funeral, it was just the music and our thoughts and it was just emotional.

These were the performers that sang a few songs:

Salim Nourallah, Chris HoltDoug Burr and The Beaten Sea.
