Roderick F. Mollison

Adolph Halwa was a quiet man, a man with a sense of humor and joy at the blessings life had brought him: A loving wife, two darling daughters and grandchildren. He was not a large man in size or stature, but in character he was a giant. I knew him well. He was my uncle, but he was closer to me and more of a man than my father ever was to me. He embodied all of the qualities than make men different, that make men outstanding. He was kind, patient. slow to anger, always willing to explain, with never a harsh or angry word, generous with is time and knowledge. Unquestionably the world is a smaller and lesser place for his passing. His family knows possibly better than I what a loss we have all sustained.
I write these words as I observe it has been now two years (about) since he left us. I see no other tributes; I see no other memorials, I see no other words of remembrance. I may be the only one who writes in the hopes that his memory should not soon disappear, but I leave my words for you, the reader, who reading them will know that he was a man, quiet, unassuming and unremarkable perhaps to others but he was all the world to me and to those close to him.

Pamyat vishnaya!
