Phillip (Grouchy) Lawrence
Dad didn’t want a wake or a funeral. He wanted a big party and for us all to listen to music and tell stories about him. He wanted us to remember the grumpy old man that was dirty-minded, and disgruntled when he turned 70 because he couldn’t tell anyone he was 69 with that mischievous smile anymore. We will have the party as soon as the governor lifts the ban on gatherings of more than 10 people. If you want to come celebrate his life, or death, you will hear about the arrangements thru the Bull Island grapevine.
