Mistress Arianna has written a very lovely memorial article for our Baron Leonard for the AEthelmearc Gazette. I encourage everyone to read it, even if you never met him. Len is a very big part of why our Barony is the way we are. He and his Baroness are missed.
In Memoriam: Baron Leonard the Younger, OL
In Levitate et Caritate,
Greetings Debatable Lands,
As the Ice Dragon passes over our neighbors to the north, We come to you with sad tidings. Baron Leonard the Younger, modernly Leonard Loyd, passed away this week at his home. His family from out of town is making the funeral arrangements, and as soon as information is available We will post.
Baron Leonard the Younger was the Second Baron of the Barony-Marche of the Debatable Lands, serving our society in that office from 1979 to 1992, and a Master of the Laurel for Viking Studies. He was a world traveler and a story teller, and we are saddened by his loss. We as a Barony are less without him as a crucial part of our history. May the long ships speed him to Valhalla.
Please toast to his memory, and share a story of the old days. Len would have liked that.
Cheers to the Remembrance of Leonard,
Brandubh et Hilderun
