I am deeply saddened to have to report the death of our own Barbara Lea, "The High Priestess of Popular Song". She died peacefully yesterday, Monday, December 26 here in Raleigh; I was with her as were my husband, Bill, and our dear friend, Junk. And as most of you already know, Barbara has been battling Alzheimer's for quite some time. So, "Sleep Peaceful", dear Barbara... we will miss you but now you are free to sing once again.
