Rest In Peace, Abby Spivak

After writing my silly note earlier about having "lost" my video camera, I opened my email just a minute ago to find a devastating note.

My friend, Abby Spivak, a rabbinical student for whom I played a birthday concert back in June, suddenly passed away. The note from her father didn't go into any detail, so I can't provide anything more than this news, but I'm absolutely heartsick.

Abby and I have known each other for almost 10 years. She was the one who spent time doing a lot of HIV/AIDS outreach into hospices and homes, working with Project Chicken Soup. Her entire life was dedicated to helping others. I'm going to miss her terribly.

We loved you Abby. More than you can ever know.

For my birthday, also St. Francis of Assisi Day,

here is "Rescue" the song I sang to Erika Amato 's Buddy the dog. Imagine if we loved humans as much as we love our animals...
