Photos and notes: Memorial for Jorge Renderos

I will add to this post at a later time. Wanted to capture some of the moment and warm feelings tonight. Jorge Renderos was a Salvadoran musician, an advocate, and an activist. He often played a PeaceSmiths Coffeehouse. I learned tonight that he often made trips to Central America to bring needed supplies, to help with positive revolution, and to sing songs at the opening of conferences and events.

Jorge’s wife Carol was there, and Jorge’s family and friends. The reception included trays and trays of delicious, home-style food, including baked clams. There was excellent music and also charming stories of love and adventure. We learned that Jorge went by many names, among them: Jorge, Roberto and Tito. Carol’s granddaughter was very close to Jorge, and she stood by while her dad spoke of their fond relationship, and later the little girl sang a song on stage.
