Lefty laid low by loneliness

June 29, 2009

“My friend Lefty died on Thursday last week. You know, he’s the one who was homeless and was in front of the Beer Store over on Dundas. Man, there were tears that came to my eyes when I heard about him. I want to pass on my sincerest condolences to everyone in his family. You know, in a way, Lefty died from loneliness.”

Addendum (July 8): Tony found a great article about Lefty in the Toronto Star of July 5th.

    tony – sorry to hear about Lefty. I never knew him obviously as a person, but I too have recently experienced some grief. My prayers are with you and Lefties friends and family.

    I wonder who was lonelier, Michael or Lefty? Either way the Good Lord is covering them both with love and comfort now.
