A prolific writer, he published so many worthwhile, passionate articles on the VT.
A public tribute to Sherwood is being held at the Betsy Hotel in Miami Beach, Florida on August 16th. He was admired, respected and well-liked among the political activists, folk singers and poets in the Miami community.
Truly, he is already missed. VT is lessor today than when Sherwood was on top of things. There is no replacement for a Sherwood Ross; just an unfulfilled hole. VT will keep up the good effort in his memory always.
