Do you remember Lawrence?

Do you remember Lawrence, an elderly gentleman with handlebar moustache?

Lawrence sang with us for a few months.  I met with Lawrence regularly.  He was one of the most fascinating elderly gentlemen that one could meet. He wasn’t really into singing but wanted to be part of the choir because I spoke about it.  I last saw Lawrence on the 30th June, the day before my holiday. On my return from holiday we had planned to meet, he did not show up. Lawrence died while I was away and his funeral was on Wednesday, 5th August in Winchester.  Thank you to Liam, Jules and Chris for being at the funeral.  Lawrence had no family. I believe he has two nephews but there was no contact.  May Lawrence rest in peace.

Here is Lawrence talking about his life work – a fitting tribute to a great man.
