    We met one day at White Pines Lake. A big gust of wind came along and blew his stack of colored papers everywhere. I jumped up immediately and together, we were able to recover all of them. We had a terrific conversation.He explained he was doing.I was the lucky recipient of a yellow origami flower.
    I still have it.I’ll cherish that memory. Rest In Peace and condolences to his family and friends.
