It was very sad to read about the passing of the leader of the nation's oldest community band, the Stonewall Brigade Band's, Mr. Bob Moody. My family and I have, for many years, enjoyed their summer Monday evening concerts at Gypsy Hill park in Staunton, Virginia. The band and their concerts are a stubborn (and welcome) vestige of small town Southern community events that continue to hang on--often by a thread--in many communities. Mr. Moody will be missed.
