Lawrence Edward Robinson and I were in the same home room beginning in 7th and 8th grades, and later off and on through high school. He kept things light in class, always cracking jokes. He'll be missed.
Carol and I first met at Garnett Elementary, then later were classmates in Mrs. Schell's French class.
Since our Gary Roosevelt '66 commencement, Carol and I stayed in touch. She and Lawrence came to visit us more than once, after I married and moved to Detroit. My husband and I joined them at their home, for a gracious Thanksgiving dinner.
Our Silver high school reunion was the one at which the three of us enjoyed reuniting and reminiscing.
We extend our heartfelt condolences to dear Mia and "Jack" and family. Dwell on your many great memories, taking solace in the fact you'll all be together again one fine day, in Jesus's name.
RIP Lawrence and dear Carol and Shannon.
