Patti (Keister) #Cooprider (28 April 1940- 4 January 2020)

Exactly one year ago today, the 62 year old “Winning Team” of Patti & Coop Cooprider became minus one, Metastatic Vulvar Cancer. Patti said “No Grieving!”

Patti in #Erfenbach, #Germany with #DIEGO gracing the #Cooprider Villa walls 1980’s.

In the end, she was still leading by example. If you haven’t seen Patti in the mini-video on her next to last day in hospice bed, it’s an exhilarating testimony of Patti’s unique ability to rise above it with buoyancy and “joie de vivre” , in a spontaneous singing response to Coop’s “I Love You” with Teddy Bear in hand. (Be sure to wait ‘til Patti sings!)

It’s precious. And, a reminder to all of us. We can find the reserves of joy in the darkest moments. HAPPY NEW YEAR from Coop and Family!

PS: Thank you Stephen Max, DIEGO VOCI PROJECT Producer for helping with the video.

DIEGO’s #CARICATURES 1970’s ERA

#Skeeter Dan #Skiing signed “Voci” 1974 & #Skier “Steverino” (aka Stephen Max) by unknown #artist

Dan and Arlene surprised the DVP with a rare caricature signed “Voci” they cherish, in addition to an exquisite oil painting by DIEGO they bought from Diego directly in Wiesbaden, Germany while Dan was stationed there. Here are Dan’s words: “I met Diego several times. See the attached “all-in-fun” sketch by Diego. He asked me what my sport was I said skeet shooting. He thought I said skiing, but I corrected him. So, you see both sports in the sketch, my broken skis and a shotgun. We purchased the painting directly from him at the Wiesbaden Officers Club”:

“Old Man with Girl”, 24 x 20 inches, Oil on Canvas, 1970’s, by Antonio DIEGO Voci.

Thank you Dan and Arlene for being a part of the DIEGO VOCI PROJECT since 2016!
