Larkin was a wonderful friend in the quiet hours. We enjoyed watching the sunset through the windows in my home, as the Grand Canyon Suite echoed from my brother's hi-fi. We were 2 teenagers allowing their nerdy side to be expressed. We  solved the world's problems and never actually told anyone about those kick back afternoons when the teenage  life took a back seat to sincere conversation and contemplation. He was a trusted cohort with a deep voice. I had a romance going with my honey and now husband, Ken. Larkin time was different. No, no sex.

.My Mom had recently passed away and I ran away from noisy and lonely moments. Larkin was needing quiet as well. He was like a giant lumberjack in appearance. He had the unsuspected sweet heart.

After a few letters and 35 years, Larkin's path intersected mine in an unbelievable circumstance that ranged from Larkin building houses for Indians in the West to meeting a colleague from my PT office in Mt.Kisco, NY at an American Indian healing arts conference. She simply told me about meeting an interesting man with a deep, resonanting voice, a quirky name and looked like a lumberjack. I asked "what was his name?" I could not believe it.

We had lunch and I never saw him again. His tender heart gave out too soon.
