I hope his page never disappears. It is a tribute to a great friend of the mountain dulcimer. I would do anything to keep his inspiration alive for our new members and young ones that have not heard of him. His compassion and love for teaching the dulcimer was as great as his love of the instrument.

Here is his FOTMD profile page, still up:

While you are visiting his page, do have a listen to his sweet music player clips in the left hand column.

P.S. I was wondering just the other day about YOU, CD, and why we hadn't heard from you in a while. ;) Glad to see you post today.

I never met Rod in person. We met online over at EveryThing Dulcimer.com. He was a welcoming presence and very encouraging of the new players. His death diminished our fellowship, but remembering him enriches us. Thanks for initiating this discussion CD.

CD, I'm thinking Rod is playing some of the Sacred Harp tunes he put together in the months before he died. . .And when we would have our online potlucks here at FOTMD, Rod could be counted on to bring Mountain Dew. :)
RIP, Deputy Mo.

The recent death of Oscar Taveras got me to thinking about a lot of friends I have had that are now gone. One dear one came to mind and that was Mo. I have to wonder what kind of things that Mo is performing in Heaven today. He was a great friend of the mountain dulcimer, teacher, and contributor to this instrument. So in remembering him I was wondering if any of you have any special memories of him that you would care to share so the new ones here that never knew him might learn about this great comrade of the mountain dulcimer and this site.
