Quote from Dr Dunegan’s son shortly after his father’s death:
FRIDAY, JANUARY 16, 2004
Today is my first day back to work. It’s a big step in returning to normal.
So far it’s going well, mostly I’m being left alone to do the piles of work that appeared while I was away. For those of you who don’t know, my father passed away a week ago today (last Friday). He suffered from colon and liver cancer. He was 70, almost made it to his 71st birthday. It’s a bit wierd sorting through all these emotions and stuff, but it’s also quite an eye-opener learning experience. My father was a good man, and I’ll surely miss him. As one friend aptly put it, “he was very sweet, yet scrappy.” I am so very appreciative of all the friends and folks who came to pay their respects, and for those who couldn’t make it… thanks for being there if only in your thoughts.
In memory of Dr. Lawrence A. Dunegan
