Mike Larkin was a sweet and gentle man. I knew him primarily as a teacher and considered him a friend. On my trips to South Africa during the period of Company Law Reform, he often asked me to teach a class or two in his courses at Wits or UCT, generally followed by dinner with others and hearty conversation. Unfailingly courteous and constitutionally respectful of others' views, he seemed more interested in what he could learn than what he could say. In the din of many voices, this grace sometimes obscured, although only briefly, a keen mind operating at a fine pitch. As the horror of his violent and far too early death recedes, we are left with the warm memories of a wonderful human being, whom all of his friends were honored to know. This essay is for Mike Larkin.
