        May he rest in peace. Was looking through back issues of An Cosantoir the other day
        and saw a picture of the same man's stand-down parade, only 7 years ago. A

          This is sad. I thought he was one of the best C/S's that I've ever seen and definitely the best SM - he had a good presence on the square and looked and sounded the part. I actually use him as a guage for all those in similar leadership positions in the US - so far only one has come close.

          God Speed SM Lawless.
