Re: September 21 - Leonard's birthday

This time last year I was very mindful of Leonard’s impending birthday and hoping so much that he would receive/read the birthday greeting/letter I had posted to him back in August care of Robert Kory. I will never know if he did receive it but I will choose to believe he did. How I wish my thoughts...

Re: "come forth from the cloud of unknowing . . ."

That is a lovely post Geoffrey, for some reason it has made me feel quite emotional and a bit tearful. I would like to send you a virtual hug if that’s ok .. :) You are of course quite correct in believing that at the very least an acknowledgement from LC’s management should have been forthcoming. I...

Re: "come forth from the cloud of unknowing . . ."

Hello Geoffrey :) I was getting a bit worried about your absence from this thread Geoffrey. I am happy to see that nothing was amiss but rather that you were waiting to see if any more useful contributions were posted. I am glad you have decided that no one ‘hates’ you Geoffrey, after all why would ...

Re: "come forth from the cloud of unknowing . . ."

hello everyone :-) thank you so much again, dear june, for the recent diligent research you contributed to a thread that was started with the intention of discussing, and perhaps eventually uncovering, what happened during leonard's final hours. i still don't know whether or not it would be wiser t...

Re: "come forth from the cloud of unknowing . . ."

leonard was alone, -geoffrey If he was as ill as we have all been led to be believed, how could he have been alone. In circumstances such as these, there is normally a caregiver :shock: Hi Mary Wouldn't Kezban have had her room on the same level as Leonard so she would always be at hand should he n...

Re: "come forth from the cloud of unknowing . . ."

I don’t know if this is of any use to you Geoffrey in respect of Violet’s ‘list’ idea but I have looked again at the various tributes available on line by those who were - it would seem - well acquainted with Leonard and copied here what I felt were the more pertinent passages in respect of Leonard...

[quote] i even go so far as straightening out dog-eared banknotes with a finger-nail before putting them into my wallet, can't stand those little bent-over corners. not only that, i make sure they're all the right way up with the front side facing outwards. not always easy when there is a long line ...

Re: "come forth from the cloud of unknowing . . ."

No.. I certainly agree the poisoning suggestion is ridiculous. I do think the discrepancies between Allan Showalter and Robert Kory’s versions in respect of time of death being in the middle of the night/daytime ?? are interesting though. I hear what you say about every moment on this earth being pr...

Re: "come forth from the cloud of unknowing . . ."

Following Allan Showalter’s posting of Robert Kory's statement there were several comments including these from 'Mandy' /Allan Showalter. Apologies to you if you have already seen this Geoffrey. (and to everyone else who has posted to this thread) (I hasten to add I don't know who Mandy is - she may...

Re: "come forth from the cloud of unknowing . . ."

Thinking back to your own close losses, did you ever get lost in that merry go round of intrusive thoughts? ' why didn't I... I should have ... maybe if I had...' hello dear cate. so good to be in touch again. i lost four immediate family members within a very small margin of time, but can mention ...

I wondered if you had seen these pictures Geoffrey of Leonard in the blue medical chair with perfumer Mandy Aftel - taken 11th August. He looks so frail bless him ..

Re: "come forth from the cloud of unknowing . . ."

Dear June, I just wanted to apologize to you for what must have seemed very insensitive behavior on my part. I know I was being glib, but my intention was just as I said was -- to warn you about some of the very strange characters back here in this section. It took me approximately two years of han...

Re: "come forth from the cloud of unknowing . . ."

Thank you Violet for the warning… I suspect you were right to give it, I am feeling somewhat like the proverbial fish out of water finding it a bit tricky attempting to decipher some of the more cryptic comments on here. I gather you all know each other very well even solongleonard who I thought was...
