Another loss to covid

Post by vetsurginc » Tue May 11, 2021 7:41 am

Sorry to report the loss of Rand Bella, superb musician and wonderful person, to covid. A virtuoso on the violin. I had the honor of playing in many orchestras with him, and it was always a delight.

Not sure if it's been posted here, but Troy Smart also passed from Covid-19 complications at the beginning of May. He was active on the old Trombone Forum. Not sure if he was a member of this site.

Also sorry to hear about Troy. We had talked a few times. I never liked hunting, but he sure did.

I also lost a friend, a dynamite french horn player. He was suffering from "long COVID", that extended malaise after the main symptoms subside. Vaccines help Long COVID so please get yours.

I am sorry to hear about Troy, too. He was a valued member of TTF. Great sense of humor.
