"And when great souls die, after a period peace blooms, slowly and always irregularly. Spaces fill with a kind of soothing electric vibration. Our senses, restored, never to be the same, whisper to us. They existed. They existed. We can be. Be and be better. For they existed." - Maya Angelou There was never a visit to him that wouldn't end with a handshake and "thank you very much" from him. He had gratitude and he gave it. He was a gentleman, a fine gentleman.
