Dr Harmon, Roshi’s first American supporter, passed away a few months earlier. On July 21 a memorial was held at Rinzai-ji at which his son, Martin, was able to be present along with friend Elisa. Steve Sanfield read an eulogy by Dr Macy followed by his own recollections. The Ceremony Hall was filled with guests, ordained and lay students. Roshi was present and spoke vividly of Dr Harmon. It was a very moving memorial for someone that had been so instrumental in our history.
