"I took this photo at Concord Pavilion in California. Joan Baez Senior was sitting next to me and asked me to take it. I sent her a copy. What a thrill that was! Also met Joan and her son after the concert. Gabe took my picture with Joan. A day to remember!"
--Jane Ryan.

The photo is signed, "Love to Tombo, Aug. '85, Mimi."
Tombo was the nickname Richard gave to Tom Costner, who was the best man at Mimi and Richard's secret Paris wedding. Tom and Mimi remained friends, and he was one of Mimi's caretakers in the end. He wrote reviews of the film adaptation of Been Down So Long and the Long Time Coming musical.
