Rest in peace to a talented entertainer whose song Northwind was the inspiration for the pet name of a former girlfriend. Many a person laughs at the stories of Northwind who managed to mix alcohol and firearms and not kill half of Vermont in each account.
Sadly, both Whitman and Northwind are no longer with us. Northwind was many things drunk, stupid but above all things she was never boring. Northwind lives on as long as people yearn to live life free.
RIP Slim Whitman
