The final audio is not an error. It just happens to be where Fergie's tape ran out.

From Lady Ivory of Atenveldt on 2011-07-01:
I just found out about Yehudah's death. So very saddened. You were always such a wonderful man. Loyal to your friends, your wife, and the dream. You are missed.

From Captain Alex of al-Barran on 2011-06-08:
Hey, The entire family has been on my mind lately. Hope all is going well. We love you, Alex

From Baron Kynan Wyllt of East Kingdom on 2011-01-15:
I was dumbfounded to see this. Over the years since I moved away I have tried to follow what has happened in Sundragon. Yehuda had always been my point of contact. Letting me know the latest. I will always remember the talks we had. And the encouragement he gave me. Rest well my friend. Wands, know that you and the family will always be in my prayers.

From Captain Alexandra de Le Mer Vert of Barony of al-Barran on 2010-05-26:
Still missing you and thinking of you! Blessings to Agnes & Rivka

From Daibhidh mac Dubhghaill of Glasgow of Barony of Twin Moons on 2010-04-23:
I met Master Yehudah at EW XXIII. A more welcoming presence I have never met, before or since. We had many shifts together at the Watch that year and in years following. He always had a smile and a joke ready. He will be sorely missed. Thank you for sharing your wisdom during the short time I knew you. Rest, O Lion of Atenveldt. I know even now, you are standing Watch over the Kingdom you loved.

From Rindill, Bard of the Picklebowl of now Reno, Nv on 2010-03-18:
Truly loved, truly amazing, and ALWAYS will have a presence larger than life -

From Beatrix & Roselia of granholme on 2010-02-15:
We saw a man at War that looked very similar to you and then remembered how much we missed hearing your voice making anouncements, and your laugh and smile...War will never be the same without you...

From B. Sommers (Lady B.) of Surprise, AZ (BSD, Atenveldt) on 2009-10-10:
It's almost the middle of October and out of curiosity I revisited the site to read the comments that were posted after I posted back in August. I thought I was doing good, being able to read everyone's fond memories w/out crying. That didn't last long. Yehuhdah, I still miss you very much. Although the pain of not having you around has lessened with time and is easier to manage, the size of the hole in my heart is still quite large. Love you & miss ya a lot! B.

From Alex the Scribe of Germany on 2009-09-08:
Yehudah was larger than life and a boon and friend true and dear. The love this man has shown for family and friends and the deeds of random kindness given to strangers are myriad and legend. Favorite memories of him his arrival at his very first Pennsic, the sight turned him into a five year old boy instantly. In his kitchen making mashed potatoes and talking to friends. At a campfire telling tales. The penguins at his tent at Pennsic.. the list is endless To Agnes and Rivka know that you are blessed to have had him as husband and father and friend. I miss you all. Alex

From Robert Hughes/Logan Alexander of Barony of Sundragon on 2009-08-29:
I always remember that Larry could make you laugh in the most unexpected ways. One night on guard duty he started doing Porky Borg and I fell off of my chair laughing. He was always making you feel young just by his presence.

From lady hawke the true red of sundragon on 2009-08-29:
for the short time I was in sundragon there was always laughter with larry... thank you for the smiles and laughter for that is how i will remember you... R.I.P red

From Dona Maestra Angela of Barony Twin Moons on 2009-08-24:
Yehudah was among my most favorite people. Always had a hug or a joke ready, screaming great sense of humor. He adored my Boglin puppet, and I had been searching online for some years to find him one...Any time I served as Feast Steward, he came to my kitchen to help prep food, and serve feast. And how many times we have heralded court or the field together I cannot count. His presence will be sorely missed, I believe the hours he spent holding various offices and working volunteer hours at Estrella over his many years in the SCA put any ten of us to shame and the rest of us will be forced to scramble to even try to fill that void of service. Truly one of the most generous and giving men I have been privileged to know.

From Pearl Mayotte of Anthem, Arizona on 2009-08-23:
I have SO MANY wonderful memories of Larry – I could write pages and pages. What a pure pleasure to have known my ‘other brother’, whom I loved immediately. He loved Wanda, Karl and Becca so much. You know that you were his life. I know this because he told me so himself just a few months ago. How many Christmases did he come to our house with his standard greeting to me of, “Hi, Sis!”, his ‘Oy to the World’ and his special Christmas socks; one red, one green. Interestingly enough, he had another pair just like them at home… After dinner was over, everyone would gather around the TV and watch the latest movie – except Larry and me. We would sit at the counter behind all of you and at some time during every celebration we would look at each other and smile, knowing that these moments gathered with family were the most precious of all. Larry was always loving, giving, ‘punny’ (Oh, the PUNS; good heavens!), helpful, reassuring, and my mashed potatoes guy. Every life he touched was made richer for the experience. I close with the conversation I had last week with our cousin Jani in South Dakota, who only met Larry once a couple of years ago while they were here visiting friends. She said, “As soon as you met him you could just tell that he was a part of you and you were a part of him”. Larry, I will never forget you. I will carry you with me always. With love from your ‘sis’, Pearl

From Lady Beatrix d' Autry of Casa Grande, Arizona on 2009-08-22:
Yehudah, Roselia and I miss you very much. We will always remember and respect you.

From Malinda of Tucson on 2009-08-20:
May you dwell forever in the Halls of The Dream.....

From Herb Zimmerman of Aventura, FL on 2009-08-19:
I can only guess at the love that Larry Baum surrounded himself with. I'm sorry I never knew him, but I know his mother and she is a special lady. Rest well, friend that I never knew. Herb Zimmerman

From Earl & Korey Nash of Indio, California on 2009-08-19:
To the family and many friends of Larry Baum: We are sorry we never had the pleasure of meeting him, but we are sure he was as wonderful a person as his mother, our dear friend, Rhoda is. May his good deeds be an inspiration to those he left behind and may he rest in eternal peace.

From Lee and Murray Goldfarb of Aventura Florida on 2009-08-18:
WE MET LARRY's parents and larry over fifty years ago, in massapequa NEW YORK. LARRY AND OUR SON RICHIE WERE BORN THE SAME WEEK, WHICH WE PARENTS FOUND OUT WHEN WE MET.

MAY YEHUDA REST IN PEACE. THE GOLDFARB FAMILY

From Saragrace Knauf of Sundragon on 2009-08-18:
I did not know Yahudah well. I met him once formally, but last EW, he walked me all the way to Staghold when he could have just pointed the way. I could tell he was gentle, kind, well loved, and embodied the values of the society. My sympathy goes to all who knew him and loved him. Saragrace

From Doria Tecla of Tournaments Illuminated on 2009-08-16:
Yehudah: Thanks for being such a kind and friendly contributor to Tournaments Illuminated -- it was a joy to work with you.

From Gary Baum of West Babylon,New York on 2009-08-16:
I was in awe of the amount of love that was shown for my big brother at the service at the chapel on Thursday evening and then the memorial service and the burial.You made it alot easier for me to cope with such a large loss to our family.I only wish I was able to be there one more day for your Saturday event.Which I am sure was filled with many a story that I myself and our immediate family would have loved to hear.As my cousin Ken wrote.I am glad that we spoke occasionally as well over the years but I do wish you had stayed in New York when you moved back here from Scottsdale in the early '80s.We did have fun while working for Dad.Too many years have passed us by with minimal contact in person.That will always be a loss for me.I always enjoyed our calls but they can never replace being together and getting into some discussion on whatever came to mind or getting into some trouble because of our mischevious ways.I will miss you and will love and honor your memory until I go into that great beyond.I know that Mom had said that she should've been in your place instead of you lying there.She only hopes that you and the rest of the Baum/Fleischer clan are together having a good ol' time. I will see you again after my time here is done as well.Larry, with all of the close and endearing friends you made,I truly believe you were the richest man on the face of the earth.For we know that the soul of a person is not measured in how much money they have or toys you own,but how many lives you touched and how many lives you have impacted with kindness and direction.You certainly did a lot of good for a great many people and will still being giving of yourself while those that knew you regale in one of your stories and wisdom that you passed along about the world around us and how we as a society got to this place and time.So long Bro.Just to let you know.The electrical work you did for me is still working fine.With love Gary.Too much more to say,but I do not want to boor the rest of you fine folk that are seeing this.Please write a story or two that you can share with the SCA and our family about the man ,the myth, the legacy of Larry(Yehudah ben Yitzrak-My Father's Hebrew name).There are those of you that I had a great pleasure in meeting while attending the services.You know who you are.Please feel free to E-Mail me anytime about anything that would give me insight to Larry and /or your friendship with him. My Address is baumgary1@yahoo.com.I know I am opening up my own pandora's box by giving my address out but I welcome the feedback about my brother and his influence on you.Love to you Wanda,Karl and Rebecca.Let's please keep in touch.Love Gary

From Professor Higgins of The Republic of Ghana on 2009-08-16:
One more Papa Bear,(the customs officials usually take cash but your money is no good there, we have an agreement): "Got out of town on a boat Goin' to Southern islands. Sailing a reach Before a followin' sea. She was makin' for the trades On the outside, And the downhill run To Papeete. Off the wind on this heading Lie the Marquesas. We got eighty feet of the waterline. Nicely making way. In a noisy bar in Avalon I tried to call you. But on a midnight watch I realized Why twice you ran away. Chorus Think about how many times I have fallen Spirits are using me larger voices callin'. What heaven brought you and me Cannot be forgotten. I have been around the world, Lookin' for that woman/girl, Who knows love can endure. And you know it will. And you know it will. When you see the Southern Cross For the first time You understand now Why you came this way 'Cause the truth you might be runnin' from Is so small. But it's as big as the promise The promise of a comin' day. So I'm sailing for tomorrow My dreams are a dyin'. And my love is an anchor tied to you Tied with a silver chain. I have my ship And all her flags are a flyin' She is all that I have left And music is her name. Chorus Think about how many times I have fallen Spirits are using me larger voices callin'. What heaven brought you and me Cannot be forgotten. I have been around the world, Lookin' for that woma/girl, Who knows love can endure. And you know it will. And you know it will. So we cheated and we lied And we tested And we never failed to fail It was the easiest thing to do. You will survive being bested. Somebody fine Will come along Make me forget about loving you. At the Southern Cross." You, Pop, and I will see it for the first time on Sept. 3rd and enjoy an Alec Bradley in the honor of those who came before us.

"Some folks like to get away, take a holiday from the neighborhood Hop a flight to Miami Beach or Hollywood. I'm taking a greyhound on the hudson river line- I'm in a New York state of mind. I seen all the movie stars in their fancy cars and their limousines, Been high in the rockies under the evergreens, But I know what Im needing and I don't want to waste more time- I'm in a New York state of mind. It was so easy living day by day Out of touch with the rhythm and the blues, But now I need a little give and take, The New York times, the Daily News... It comes down to reality-and its fine with me cause I've let it slide, Don't care if its Chinatown or Riverside, I don't have any reasons, Ive left them all behind- I'm in a New York state of mind. I'm just taking a greyhound on the Hudson river line- cause Im in a New York state of mind." - Billy Joel Are we still on for dinner?

From Cousin Ken Rubman of Ft Lauderdale, FL on 2009-08-15:
Cousin Larry, I love you and I'll miss you until the day I go. I am happy that we spoke occassionally over the years and that my wife Pam and I were able to see you and Wanda a couple of years ago. I realized taht I have known you longer than able else in my life. We were both born in 1952 ... you in February 22 and me in August. Did you ever tell anyone how you thought that your entire neighborhood was celebrating your birthday by putting flags out and no school!!! Back then school was closed for Washington's Birthday. Larry, we had pkenty of sleep overs and trips to Miami Beach to visit Grandma and Grandpa ... boy was it fun staying at the motel your grandparents owned ... And I really can't believe I'm writting this and you are gone. We all had good times growing up ... Fathers Day Bar-B-Ques ... dinnesr at 7 Croscus Drive ... lazy Susan and all ... remember your train set on the fold up platform in your bedroom. I'll miss you and to all your Middle Ages friends thanks for being so kind to my Cousin Larry and saying so many nic ethings and to Wanda ... Karl (I loved your Grandpa Karl ... gave your Dad a wire recorder ... that was before tape recorders) and Rebecca I wish you all the best in life and I know your lives will never be the same and I've lost a bit of my heart this week. Larry I love and Miss you. Goodbye. Cousin Ken

"Security Point to Iain: Did you get Yehudah's headset off when you put him to bed?"

From Susan Hand Bauder of Pennsylvania on 2009-08-14:
Larry and I went to Plainedge HS together; although not close friends, I can tell by this site how much he will be missed, and how he was loved by so many. Sincere condolences to Larry's family. Susan Hand Bauder, Harriett Hand and Edward Hand

From Vallawulf of Clan Wolfhaven on 2009-08-14:
Yehudah, I will miss you, my friend. Love to Agnes and Rivka and the family.

From Elfleda Tarsella of Bethoc of Carmel, Indiana - Formerly Sundragon on 2009-08-14:
The memories I have of you, Larry! I've known you since the early, early days of the Barony and was proud to call you brother in all things. Memories of you courting Wanda in my living room, how happy you were when she said "Yes!", how proud you were when Becca was born and your joy for us when we finally were able to add our own bundle of joy to the group. I especially remember our Sunday morning meals at the restaurant where we all gathered in later years to just have a great gab-fest amongst friends. I miss that the most. I will be with everyone in spirit as you celebrate the life of a great man this week. My thoughts will be with Wanda, Karl and Rebecca.
