Dr. G. Bernard Worrell, Jr.

T & I met Judie Worrell at a WOOnderful gig in Chicago. I only slowly realized at the time that she wasn't just some sweet lady working the merch table for Bernie Worrell. She was & has always been the champion of all things Bernie, personal and public.

Last night he succumbed to illness. Today I feel for those who knew & loved him most, like, for example, his Rubberband brother Bootsy. Even more I hope for solace in peace for Judie, who's witnessable fortitude over the course of this year reminds me of the unreckonable resolve my mother showed when she bravely ushered my father forth.
