A True Gentleman

by Linda Halvorsen

While To Kill A Mockingbird is still my all-time favorite book/movie, my greatest memory of meeting Mr. Peck was at Grandparents Day at Campbell Hall in North Hollywood, CA where I worked.  He arrived at the check-in desk and I was fortunate enough to assist him.  He had such a humble demeanor but underneath a man of great strength.  A lovely broad smile and a twinkle in his eye as he thanked me for my help before he left for the day’s activities.  Such a gentleman.  It was a moment in time which I will forever treasure.
