Many of you didn't know Lance Gardenhire, the first trombone player in my
youth band, The "Barkin' Dawg". Lance passed away last night from cancer
that started with melanoma on his right arm...remission for several years,
then it came back with a terrible vengeance, and spread to his brain. He was
a youth band sit-in two years ago at the Sacramento Jubilee with the "Yve
Evans and Company" band from San Bernardino. 19 years old! Great kid, gentle
personality, always good natured...
I started him on trombone when he was in the 6th grade...I loved that boy!
