1. Keenan House Marker
Inscription.  
Dedicated to the work of Richard S. Csandl (1937-1988), founder of Keenan House.

"Here at last we can take root and grow,
not as the giant of our giant of our dreams
or the dwarf of our fears,
but as a person,
part of a whole with a share in its purposes.
Not alone anymore as in death,
but alive in ourselves and in others."
