The closest link I had to my half-brother WALTER was by far the most engaging one that I could ever hope to have in this life.
Jerre was a delight to be around, and it was inspirational to me to share a small piece of this life with her.
To my niece CAROL, and my nephew TOM my condolences.
I trust you appreciate your mother's appetite for life, and shared it with her.
Know that my thoughts are with you, and I hope God's mercy will heal your heart in this time of grief.
I remain your half-uncle,
Gordon Boyer Lawrence
