THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU
Someone donated $100 (Anonymous) to the gofundme site for Inferno! The Cocoanut Grove Fire after my post. Thank you so very much.
Both my sister and I have been in contact with James Prince.
James told us that he wants Goody Goodelle to have a bigger part in the play when he presents it in Boston near the original Cocoanut Grove lounge. I have agreed to scan photos of mom (and I) when I was young to include in the lobby to show that she went on to have a happy life after the fire. My sister will be digitizing some of mom’s old records to also play in the lobby. Who knows, depending on the level of hassle, we might even put them up on iTunes (no promises).
This has all turned out to be very exciting and unexpected for my sister and I.
I wish mom were alive to see it, although maybe not as I am sure that the memories were painful.
