September 28, 2005 Lisa Tolliver Show pays tribute to the late Robert Shaw Tolliver and features Food P.A.T.C.H., Westchester County's Food Bank

WESTCHESTER COUNTY, NY - I was originally scheduled to host both "SCORE Radio" today (featuring Food P.A.T.C.H.: Westchester County's Food Bank) and "The Lisa Tolliver Show" (featuring photographer Rich Remsberg, who recently published Riders for God"). However, SCORE changed the host lineup (which bumped me to a later date) and my father died on September 17. Therefore, today's "Lisa Tolliver Show" featured:
Guest Christina Rohatynskyj, Executive Director of Food P.A.T.C.H. , who shared that organization's mission and initiatives and provided advice about sending donations to disaster victims,
A tribute to my beloved father (and past guest on a Veteran's Day radio broadcast), the late Robert Shaw Tolliver. Dad died of heart failure related to Stage 4 lung cancer and emphysema. As part of his tribute, I played Luther VanDross' "Dance With My Father."

Thank you Whitney Radio Engineer, Steve Tito, for the tissues. And thank you and bless you, listeners, who contacted me after the show to share your condolences and inform me that you'd kept Dad in your prayers.
