This is heavy. The world just gets darker and meaner with the loss of folk like Othar.

as a double whammy, othar's daughter bernice passed away tonight, after a long battle with cancer.

as the organizer for othar's picnics and musical appearances, everyone who met othar invariably also met bernice. her positivity and strength powered the whole rising star fife and drum band and its circle of guest stars.
