Bust of Mark Twain
(I didn't mention my list of typewriter repair shops.)
PS: Mr. Whitlock passed away on August 28, 2013 after an illness of about two months.
Randall Beach of the New Haven Register reports that Whitlock wrote his own epitaph:
How many minutes? How many hours?
How many days or years?
How many miles? How many smiles?
How many laughs and tears?
Shall I leave here on earth and say ‘farewell’
and leave for a life unknown?
Heaven and hell don’t suit me well.
I’ll create a life of my own
Where the friends I have known, and have long since flown
Await me with open arms.
And the friends left behind will one day find
That no one is ever alone.
