The Book Reviews
The Reviews are coming in!!! The one from Mark Schurmeier's
parents made us both cry.
The book is awesome.
More than I expected. Sylvia Otto
Iíve been fascinated
the last two nights reading the Rockmore book since Tee and you dropped it off
on Monday evening. It is a beautiful and well done publication, and I
congratulate Shirley, Tee and you on a job well done with this steadfast labor
of love. Iím impressed!
Blessings and best wishes to all of you, brother! Pat Broderick
I'm so impressed with
your book. I sat down and read it cover to cover as soon as it arrived. It
truly took me on a visit to my past. I lived in the apt over Larry and Pat on
St. Peter next to preservation hall back in the day. Pat and I became dear
friends and will always treasure that. I worked at the Vaucresson and have fond
memories of Noel playing piano or violin. Sometimes Paul Ernst would accompany
or did he sing opera? I forget now. Anyway, thank you for such a wonderful book
with such great story telling. I would like to RSVP for the event sat. Looking
forward to it and so glad that Noel is being celebrated for the great artist he
was. Thank you all for your very hard work. Lindy Brown
We are back in Orange
Beach remembering the lovely
evening we had last night. It was great to see you both and also to see Shirley
and Macy and Tory and their families. It was good people, food and music, and
such an interesting place! We wish you continued
success with Noel Rockmore and your book and the French Quarter efforts. We are
very impressed with all you have accomplished! We know it took LOT
of talent and hard work. Mark would be proud of you too!
Love to you, Sue and
Rich & Tee - I
received the book and I must say, the design and layout is wonderful. As a former
graphic designer, this concept is the finest way to tell Noel's story. Job well
done, Bill Bale

Rich and Tee:
You might want to go
by and see the response that Garden District Book Shop has to these sorts of
events. Also, THANKS so much for the official Rockmore piece. We are taking it
to be framed this weekend. Lenora was excited to see the finished book and Lou
