LH Rivard

LH Rivard [left in photo] was the most remarkable man I ever knew.  But none of it came from direct contact or personal experience, because he was not in the habit of talking with his grandchildren.  Rather, I learned about him by discovering what he had done and accomplished during his life, and how he had provided for his family even after his bank failed during the depression.  He never used profanity, rarely showed emotions, loved family gatherings, especially if they would conclude with a card game (whist was his favorite).  As a high school student, and with encouragement of my Mom, I gathered information about his life.  John
