With deep regret and profound sadness, I inform you that Maris Lynne Long passed away peacefully the evening of Monday, March 15, 20121, at 78, after a brief illness. She will be missed.
Maris Lynne and her husband Jerry performed many times on the Hill Country Community Theatre stage. She served on the HCCT board as well as serving as its president. Maris Lynne and I enjoyed sharing many bad puns and arguing about punctuation. She also shared many HCCT stories with me over the years. I especially enjoyed the anecdotes from the nuns' backstage antics in "The Sound of Music."
This past summer, I collected funny stories and delightful recognitions from our HCCT family of things that happened on and off stage. Below, I am sharing Maris Lynne's story about an experience she had during the production of "The 1940's Radio Hour|" with you again.
