Condolence from Patt O’Shea Monderer on April 7th, 2014 12:00 am

Although I have not seen Q in decades, I think of him often. He was a special guy. I am going to miss him very much. He left us too soon.

Condolence from Lauris Lee on April 9th, 2014 12:00 am

What a shock to see Q’s passing in the paper. Q was a fraternity brother who was a very special person. I especially remember football games where we prided shutting down the left side on defense, matching Cokes at the laundry mat and rides from Trailways in Charlotte to Columbia. There were a lot of dented highway signs on this route. I will never forget the shower in the fraternity full of Ducks after one of Q’s hunts. So glad we reconnected through Hardscrabble reunions when we moved to North Carolina in 98. Nancy and I send our prayers and love to Henry and the rest of Q’s family. Lauris and Nancy Lee

Condolence from Larry Long on April 10th, 2014 12:00 am

I knew Q from Jordan H.S & have not seen him in many years. I was new to Jordan & felt out of place but could always count on Q’s easy smile & kindness. I think of him & Henry from time to time and know he will be greatly missed by all who knew & loved him. Rest in Peace, Q, you are forever special.
