Thank you very much for the nice obituary you wrote about my brother, Roland Hansen.

I understand that some of the musicians who perform at the Wine & Roses Hotel will be dedicating a night of music performance on Sept. 10 to Arlo Hansen. I have sent two of my compositions to the hotel manager for the musicians who will be performing that night.

I met noted songwriter Johnny Mercer when I was in broadcasting after World War II, and my friendship continued for 20 years until Johnny’s death in 1976, following a brain tumor operation. He added some words to a Christmas song of mine, “Mistletoe Mansion,” before his death, so that makes me his last collaborator.

I trust my songs that I sent to the Wine & Roses musicians are more than passing fair.
