Last night was a lovely event with friends and family of Kerry Schooley coming to the Pearl Company on Stephen Street in Hamilton.
Kerry was a well known figure here in Hamilton for his involvement in the Literary Arts scene.
The Pearl was a perfect spot to hold this event in and our hosts were very gracious in lending this spot for this occasion.
Many people read from Kerry's work and spoke on how he had influenced them.
His wife and daughters were present at this event and his daughter spoke about her Dad and how he is missed.
It personally brought tears to my eyes as I listened to her.
May he rest in peace.
