Vernon Wolcott is such a memorable person that his death will not remove him from our minds. I think he loved to surprise people by looking stern and serious and then producing droll, witty comments. A gifted performer on organ, an inspiring teacher, a loving parent, he also was a wonderful artist who devised and developed a strong personal style. My condolences to Nancy, David, and Debbie as you learn to live without his ever-stimulating presence.
