    In Memorium

    With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last week. Larry LaPrise, who wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at age 93.


    The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin.
    First, they put his left leg in;




    that's when the trouble started.

    "There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living."
