A man I know passed away. I attended his memorial as I like him (yeah, I know about the verb tense). He was hard not to like.
I’ve been to some memorials in my time. There is something—well—memorable about them all. At the heart of it is that someone mattered. This gentleman I knew the least of all of those whose memorials I have attended. Yeah, I’m sure he had his foibles, so no sugar-coating. And yet he had an impact—not because of what he did exactly, nor whom he knew, but because of who he was: he was interested.
What would this place look like if we were really interested?
