Reliving musical memories

Harmonizing with Richard Mills are (l-to-r) South Shore Four vocalists Ken Foisy, baritone; Dick Toth, bass; Don Flock, lead; and Harold Long, tenor.

The South Shore Four Barbershop Quartet surprised Westlake Village resident Richard Mills recently with a private performance. Mills, a talented singer himself, even had an opportunity to join in and sing the lead on a few songs. Mills once sang with a jazz band, and has wonderful memories of frequent visits to New Orleans to perform with local groups there. Hospice of the Western Reserve arranged the surprise visit as part of its life enrichment program, which works on granting the wishes of patients. The program is part of the non-profit agency’s philosophy of helping individuals celebrate life to the fullest through meaningful and memorable experiences.
