Over the course of a year, a single picture is taken by A temporary intervention at the Barcelona Pavilion I rub my eyes in disbelief, dazzled by its appearance. Pinch them together, then look again. Precise, harmonious, poetic as always. Some of our tours. I am now fascinated by the subject matter of ottoman and byzantine mosques. They had never experienced such a good architecture tour before!

George Gegenworth was a self-made man. No one realizes this more than the writer.

Born and raised just two blocks apart in the old town of Columbus, we grew up with George and throughout the many years that have elapsed since we were boys together, he was always the same, as true as steel to his friends, always glad to extend a helping hand to those less fortunate than himself. George had a hard struggle in his early days, as we well remember, yet he never faltered. That he eventually achieved success he owed to no one but himself. George loved life and got pleasure out of it.

That he hated to go and leave his loved ones, we well know. Stricken with heart trouble recently, he put up many a fight, but the creator of all things willed otherwise, and our life-long friend was called to his eternal home. We mourn his passing as we would that of a near and dear relative, for we were boys raised up together and our friendship through all the long years of manhood never faltered. We always regarded George Gegenworth as one of our truest, bets friends, and his passing has struck us a blow from which we will never recover.

Possessed o f a most cheerful disposition, honest and sincere to all, a kindly word and cheerful greeting for all who met her, she was a typical southern lady, one whose acquaintance was a source of delight and benefit to all around her. In the church, the Sunday school, the lodge room, the family circle and the neighborhood, her presence was an inspiration and pleasure, and her death is deplored and regretted as sincerely as if she had spent the whole of her life among us.
