FANS & FRIENDS
IT IS WITH GREAT SADNESS, THAT THE FAMILY OF ELLIE GREENWICH ANNOUNCES HER PASSING
TO THE THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE WHO EXPRESSED THEIR LOVE AND SYMPATHY...WE ARE DEEPLY GRATEFUL
ELLIE WILL ALWAYS BE REMEMBERED FOR HER MUSIC...BUT HER TRUE LEGACY WILL ALWAYS BE...ELLIE "THE PERSON"
OUR THANKS TO ALL WHO WENT OUT OF THEIR WAY TO EXPRESS THEIR FEELINGS
*I am sorry to say that my dear, dear friend, Steve Tudanger has passed away. Steve and I collaborated on many different projects, including several of my albums, (along with Steve Feldman). We were also partners in a Jingle Writing Company. That being said, the true talent of Steve Tudanger was his soul. He was small in stature...but a GIANT as a man. His enormous talent (including being a member of the vocal group, "The Four Ever's") spanned decades, but his true legacy will be the way that he touched people he met. Steve was a true friend in every sense of the word. He made us all laugh right up to the end. In all my years in the Music Business I never heard one person say an unkind thing about him. Not one. I (and all of his friends), will MISS HIM, ADORE HIM and LOVE HIM FOREVER. "Goodnight 'Tude'.....Sleep tight" LOVE YOU
*My Niece finished with Law School? How can that be? Seems like she was in High School two weeks ago, Then Penn State, Brooklyn Law and now waiting for Bar Exam results
*To my Nephew Rick. You've have made a real track record for yourself. What a role model. We're very proud of you for lots of things!! You know what they are.

*To My Reunited Family...speaking for myself, Laura, Rick Jess and Bob. It was so great to see Cousins Jill, and Megan. Jared is for the next trip. Wish Peter could be here too.
