R.W. Apple: The Memorial Service

Click here here here here and here for coverage of yesterday’s event at the Kennedy Center.

Our man on the scene also pointed out some other tidbits…

  • The back of the program included all those who had contributed food and libations to the reception afterward. In typical Apple fashion, the list of chefs, restaurantuers and vintners ran into the dozens. All top-shelf, of course.

  • The stories and anecdotes from the 13 (how fitting, a baker’s dozen) speakers all ran to the humorous. A few folks got choked up, but it was largely a moveable feast on as the tribute was titled, a “very full life.”
