Send Condolence

Lath and family, My sincere condolences...we all go so far back! Avarm and I met in graduate school and became fast friends over a joke I made in class one day. We had a special bond during those days, and whenever I saw him over the years it was like no time had passed. My heart is saddened by the news of his death. He will be missed by many of us.

Although there are no words, Lathe, you and Ave( he’ll always be Ave to me) showed me what love was really about. Thank you both for that gift that you probably never knew you gave me.
