My life has been, not outstanding in any way. Put on a chart the highs would equal the lows, the successes the failures.
Achievement level “C”.
But the important part:
I have been, from infancy to the present time, totally enveloped in love. It has come from every imaginable source. First of all the love of God. It was so intense that He came as a man, gave his life for mine that I could spend my life with Him. I Corinthians 13 best describes what love really is. It’s not the easily said, easily forgotten platitude that it has become. But rather the most moving force on earth. I have been loved all my life by people who without reason did so. I have known 60 years of love from Pat. All of Polly and Karen’s lives, my Granddaughter Lisa and her husband Brian and their children Reese and Robert. I’ll not name other names. There are too many and I don’t want to offend by omitting someone. My family, those related to me, everyone surrounding me that have given of themselves without reservation, without a pre-commitment and without condemnation, have been my great great source of strength. It has consumed, it has enveloped, it has totally brought me within its sphere. I don’t think I need go any farther than that. I cannot tell you in words how much you all have meant to me. So you fill in the blank spaces.
Lou Gehrig, the “Iron Man” of baseball, in his final, probably only speech in Yankee Stadium, closed with this comment which I will paraphrase, “I believe I am the most blessed man in all the Earth.”
Attainment level “A”
