Oh this is so sad.. "Suspenders George" was a good friend and one of my very 
favorite dancers when we toured down that way. George was always friendly and 
always helpful. And he sure was a great "dipper"..

Please forward the Dean Snipes dance and I will call it next chance I get!!

Hi all,
George Rettie, the NC dancer in the yellow ruler suspenders, passed away 
unexpectedly this week. He'd been dancing since at least the 1980's, and it was 
a rare dance that he didn't attend. He was always the first to volunteer (and 
did, more hours than I can count), personally thanked the musicians and 
callers, danced with beginners, dipped everyone beautifully and frequently, 
flirted with us all, could call one dance (Gene Hubert's "A Nice Combination"), 
brought his children into the dance community, and was a favorite partner to 
many, many dancers.

Myra, Adina, and JoLaine are calling a dance that Dean Snipes wrote for George 
some years ago. If you're calling sometime soon and are so moved, I would like 
to invite you to call it too. If you're dancing, I hope you'll go up to the 
stage and thank the musicians and callers, welcome the beginners, and have an 
extra-good time.
