Dear old Larry

Postby steeljam » Fri Jan 22, 2021 01:01 pm

Larry Hart was a good man and will be sorely missed.
I liked Larry, he was one of those people who added to the texture of one’s life, someone who made the world a slightly better place.
Larry was generous, kind, and clever. Not just in cunningly folding paper, he was a wise man in so many ways. Of course, like all of us, there were not so many faults as idiosyncrasies that could present themselves occasionally. Corners. Larry always wanted corners and on more than one occasion with the shop heaving with people, Larry would politely elbow his way to the counter, lean over and with a wicked twinkle in his eye, ask for corner stamps. He and Judy were always first in the queue when the shop opened, and their arrival rekindled the friendship we all enjoyed. I shall miss his phone calls, his laughter, and his kindness.
Isobel, I, Ian, and Reb all send our condolences to Judy. They were a team her and Larry and I can only imagine the pain of her loss. Larry Hart was part of the family, part of the tribe, in his own way, part of Discworld. We all will miss him.

I read Bernards tribute to Larry and thought the same.

He was always a laugh. Both him and Judy always came to say Hi and to show me his latest paper fold.

I even tried to make a silver swan that looked like it was folded from paper (failed but I tried)

Its never nice when you loose someone, but its good to always keep those memories with you.
