He was a remarkable man: a retired professor in the field of education. He was a voracious reader, a deep thinker, and a gentle and kindly person. He is already missed.
This is a collage that I assembled for him as a little gift for our last trip to see him a month and a half ago. It is evident in these snapshots that Larry was very fit but was felled too early by polycythemia, which could not be tamed.
On the day of his parting, to calm our grieving spirits, we took a restorative stroll in a nearby conservation area. The woods and the blooming lilacs helped to restore our troubled souls.
|Sisters, Sue and Heather, shared many happy memories.|
|Both life and lilacs are ephemeral but gifts to be greatly appreciated.|
