During the past 2 weeks I knew of two great people in our
illustrious trade pass away. But where are their stories of what they
accomplished? All I heard were a few kind words of what both have
done. All I will see are a few words on their small tombstones..(the
usual stuff).."Here lies --- ---, born 19--, died
August--/2014.(nuttin' else. a real darn pity!) I intend no one
should 'just drop me into the ground & not know of what I've done'.
My ongoing videos' will be my ever lasting obituary, I'm even
thinking of putting a few of them into YouTube. I want Orchid to see
& keep the best of them, text & films.
My Mother wrote many articles & her life story. Her words are with
'us', even for my g-kids to read years from now. Our lives are full of
our dreams & thoughts. I suggest these should be written & let others
see what made us so special.
I suggest write or video on what you do, this will last long after
you're gone. "*Orchid is our tool*" to show our skills to the next
generation of gifted jewellers. Let them see how we did our
fabrication, they might learn something new!...*Gerry Lewy*
As I get older, more and more of my friends are dying.
I lost my mother this past May...
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Well said Gerry and I am grateful for all you share! -Carrie Nunes
Right on, Gerry. You are an inspiration to me. Judy in. Kansas, who
