First Time Clamming

A few days ago I was sorting through some of my parents' old papers, and discovered several interesting finds. After my dad died, in 2002, Capt. Rob Temple sent me a note. He wrote, "Although Lawton has departed from us physically, his gifts to us are alive and well, especially in the delightful memories that hundreds of us who knew and loved him will treasure to the ends of our own lives."

Lawton Howard













I also discovered a story about my dad written by part-time resident Warner Passanisi that illustrates what Capt. Rob was referring to. The story is titled "First Time Clamming - A Fond Remembrance of Lawton Howard." You can read it here.
