This week is Thanksgiving week and it’s an especially meaningful one for The Perps. We are sad to announce that Marie Dorn, wife of our singer Sterling Dorn, passed away last week. Sterling and Marie enjoyed a long and fruitful marriage spanning many, many decades, and her absence will be felt deeply by all who knew her. Sterling’s signature song – and the one with which he always ended his performance – was What A Wonderful World. Before singing it he always took time to talk about the meaning of the song and how it encourages us to rise above the bad in life and focus on the goodness all around us. 

In that spirit, we look at this sad event and try to remember that, when faced with such a loss, we can find comfort in the adage “don’t be sorry it’s over, be glad it happened.”

We will keep Marie in our hearts and dedicate to her memory our next performance at Blackwall Hitch in Annapolis this coming Sunday, November 27, from 10am until 2pm. Let her passing remind us to give thanks for all the good people and things in our lives. Until then, have a blessed Thanksgiving.
