In memory of Grandpa, Rich "Lex" Luther -
To laugh often and much
to win the respect of intelligent people and
the affection of children;
to earn the appreciation of honest critics
and endure the betrayal of false friends;
to appreciate beauty,
to find the best in others
to leave the world a bit better,
whether by a healthy child, a garden patch,
or a redeemed social condition;
to know even one life has breathed easier
because you lived.
This is to have succeeded.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body. Life, should be, to skid in broadside, stepping out into a cloud of dust and smoke, bruised and broken with a heart that says - I gave it my best, I got this one right.
- Hunter S. Thompson
