Today we’re going to honor Tetsuko of Cold Mountain, formerly Susan Garlock, born Susan Gould, AKA Chris’s mom, who passed away peacefully on Tuesday in Pueblo, Colorado. She was surrounded by her close friends and all three sons -- Christopher, Seth and Shem -- as well as her beloved puppy AJ. They toasted her new adventure with Cava and tequila and sang -- off-key but with a great deal of heart -- her favorite John Lennon song, "Imagine." We’re going to play it here, now.
