Further Dedications

A plaque on a Mississauga park bench is dedicated to Michael Lienerth.

The name on that plaque might look vaguely familiar if you’ve read the dedications for The Gift-Knight’s Quest. Granted that for the purposes of the book, I used a different and more colloquial form that many of us called him, whereas I believe the plaque bears his legal name.

He was a handyman, knowing a lot about carpentry and having practical knowledge of electrical work; he could do a lot more than that. The park bench which bears this dedication looks a lot more like the wood he worked with, not having the same stain as the other benches.

This past Sunday a bunch of us celebrated his birthday in a manner he would have wanted, and I’m just about recovered from it now…
