I want to say a proper goodbye to a good friend & a good man

  • Published in Letters
To the editor,
My friend Carl Lafond passed away May 23.
Carl had known my husband John and I when we lived in Rochester. We found a place in the same building as Carl when we moved to Laconia. Carl and his cat "Molly"! For a long time before my husband passed Carl would drive him to Dover for medical treatments. When Carl became ill I was nearby to be there for him, as he was for John. Coincidentally, Carl left us five years and one day from the time of losing my husband.
Thank you for allowing me print space to say a proper goodbye to a good friend, and a good man.
