Freitag, Lawrence B.
The Guest Book is expired.
Apr. 22, 1930 - Nov. 8, 2012
Lawrence and his wife came to Sarasota 20 years ago from West Chester County, NY.
They loved Sarasota and its wonderful cultured community.
Lawrence died peacefully after a long illness.
Beside his loving wife, Lawrence left behind five beloved children and seven grandchildren.
Through a poem he loved so much he speaks to us:
"Kindle the lights and put fire in the censers about my couch, scatter around my body petals of roses and narcissuses, leave me deep in the arms of my slumber".
He was buried in the family plot in Westchester County, N.Y. surrounded by family and friends.
