WAYNE CALVIN MARTIN "Wayne Calvin Martin is moving from his long-time home on Austin Street two blocks south of the old San Jacinto High School to the Abbey Mausoleum on the grounds of Forest Park Lawndale where he has purchased a small space in the north-side columbarium wall with a glass window near the back of the hall on your left as you face the back door. You can see his picture in the window along with a few mementos from his long rich life. A small folded paper crane is a memory of two years in Japan (the defining experience of his life), a sprig of rosemary in memory of teaching great kids for 39 years in HISD. Greek boys in 500 BC wove rosemary into their hair on test day "to make them smarter." The little crystal owl is Athena's totem. Enough said. The kitty cats were his friends and companions in his happy old age. The Abbey is open every day from dawn to dusk for visitation. Drop by and say hello." Written by Mr. Martin on the 17th of February 2009.
