I didn’t really know Betts, but I know Gentilly Girl, who has also been a regular commenter on this blog, and so I am reposting this from Liprap’s Lament in hopes of garnering a few more bucks for the cause. There’s currently over $300 in the fund but more is needed. Start the New Year right and help a local blogger out.
From Ray in Exile, December 20, 2010:
Betty Ann Davis, RIP. Betts, who was my friend and who was Morwen Madrigal’s long-time partner, passed away suddenly last night after a long illness. This is so very sad.
From Maitri, also on December 20:
Betty Ann Davis, friend and partner of Morwen Madrigal, passed away last night after a long illness. Sweet, quiet Betts, until she got behind a pool cue or shot glass, and then you’d best watch out. Morwen herself has been very ill lately and I worry about the effects Betts’s passing will have on her.
At this time, friend and blogger Morwen needs our help to defray the costs of the funeral and the second line, which will begin at Mimi’s in the Marigny on January 5 of the new year, 6 PM. All donations are in the care of NOLA Slate. Please head to PayPal and direct your donations for the band at the second line to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Appreciate the heads-up.
Happy 2011 to you.
Thanks for the repost, B. The help is very much needed.
