Music was Sherri Wood's life, so why not celebrate the all-too-brief life of the Toronto Sun entertainment writer with a summer music festival in her name?
"That was one idea pitched today at services for Wood, who died last Monday after a brave battle with brain cancer. She was not yet 29 years old," Bill Brioux, former Sun TV writer, says in his TV Feeds My Family blog.
What Sherri Woodstock requires is all of the energy and resources Sherri would have contributed to such a project, so Brioux is asking for feedback ASAP re a venue, bands etc.
Brioux says the Sherri Woodstock idea was raised at an "after wake" following funeral services at Turner and Porter. (View the Sun's tribute page.)
"If you are involved in the Toronto music scene and would like to offer suggestions and advice on the best way to push this all forward, please leave a comment here or reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org," says Brioux.
TSF wonders if media musicians abandoned when the plug was pulled on this year's Newzapalooza could make music in memory of one of their own and raise funds for cancer research while doing it.
It's a natural. TSF can already hear the Sherri Woodstock music and the celebration of her life.
