Commemorative "In Memory" YouTube video found!

As you may recall, Fred Michael and I collaborated on a video dedicated to our classmates who had passed away prior to our 50th Reunion in 2012.  We used a special recording of "Fields of Gold", by a singer who had passed away herself.  Well the copywrite police pulled the video from YouTube.  It's a good thing because it made me tear up everytime I watched it ... and I probably watched it a zillion times, each time shaking my head in sorrow and disbelief.

I don't even know what I was researching for, nothing to do with Custer, when I accidentally stumbled across a listing of the video!  So I tried it .. AND IT WORKS!!!  I don't know how long it will last before it's pulled again but in the meantime, if you feel like a good tear jerker, here once again is an encore performance of "In Memory":



What we once enjoyed we can never lose.
