I feel so fortunate that Brian introduced me to you and Carl, Ginny...his childhood neighbors! I learned so much from both of you. Laura, the book "The Creator's Canvas" by Stephen still sits prominently in my living room. As was sung in "Hamilton", we will see Eric, Brian and now Carl, on the other side. It's sad to say good bye, but my life is better for both Carl and you, Ginny, having been in it.

Mr. Schluntz was a “touchstone” in our community—always kind when I was a small child, and an inspiration as a young adult. He gave us words to live by at church, and hard-won praise on special occasions. He was an inspiration at the gym. I remember him in the 1960s driving by in that Norman Rockwell white station wagon with red leather interior with the whole family waiving happily going by. You ran a tight ship; my fellow Naval Officer, and gave us all a show we won’t forget!

I miss you, Laura.

Fair winds and following seas to you, Mr. Schluntz. — a long, good life; and a great example you were!
