I always enjoyed my visits with Russ; got a haircut from him every month. Russ was a throw back toRead More a time when there were real barbers in real barbershops. He'll be sorely missed.

I am grateful to have known Russ and will remember him with Joy!

I will miss Riss. He cut my hair from '83-'88. Always told me he would retire to Montana. HadRead More his pulse on the times and youth in particular. Memo to parents; Russ knew more about your kids than you did! For me personally Russ was a special character. A rational thinker, a sympathetic ear and one, who when asked, would dispense some very sound advice. Not just a barber, Russ was much more to many people; especially the kids of Mill valley and interlopers from Sausalito like me. Love you Russ. Drinks are on me wherever you are.

I engineered the CD with Michael McClure and Ray, and having them in my home studio for a few mixingRead More sessions was a pleasure, and I felt in the presence of greatness and courtesy. Ray loved my wife's homemade bread and marmalade, and was a gentleman through and through. We miss him. Here's a ten minute trip worth taking with him: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OoRFAbdmKD4 and a track from the CD Piano Poems, with Larry Kassin on flute: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pnqVez_ZCWk

I only met him a dozen times when we were photographing the same event for different newsRead More organizations, but I always enjoyed our brief chats. He seemed like a wonderful and kind man, as well as an outstanding photographer. I will miss him.

I' m "so wicked pissed" along with you, Cate. Thanks for your personal and sympatheticRead More description of the attitudes and actions of your Boston community. Riding the Green Line past Copley will from now on give way to a silent moment or two.

You really captured the moment. Beautiful writing.

Beautiful eyes. May her memory be for a blessing.
Franklin Carter March 16, 2013 at 06:14 pm
She was as her name suggests. She was a beautiful girl both inside and out. I'm am so sorry for thisRead More tragedy, for her family and those who loved her. And, for those who are still in the hospital, pray they recover fully to live life, remembering it is a gift that can be taken away in the blink of an eye.

No, I did not take lessons from Anne, but I and a friend did interview her for our high schoolRead More newspaper, Exeter, California, in 1948! And later when I taught at Terra Linda High School, I had her daughter Carrie as a student in history and government class; and got to meet Anne again. Many thanks to a kind person, and a very excellent student. A real pleasure. Thanks, Don Bowden

Pat McDonough was one of the reasons Mill Valley's schools have such a great history. He was moreRead More than a books-and-tests guy. He spent time with the students just having fun and making friends. We'll all miss our good friend.

mr. mcdonough brought me joy upon joy each time i was sent to the principal's office during 7thRead More & 8th grades. whenever my friends torture me with stories about my screaming tears (after not being particularly nice to my teachers, obviously), i am often brought back to those lovely moments of learning to right myself, however temporarily, with so much patience guiding me back towards calm. thank you, dear man.

Chuck was such a gentle giant in Novato – he will be missed – he will not be forgotten.
