Beautiful.....Inside and Out....

at 90!
This lovely lady and I have known each other for most of my life. At 15 while living in a car and working at a restaurant she took pity on me and gave me a place to stay till I had the money to pay the rent!
She has a heart as big as the world and would give her last nickel to someone else if they needed it more than her. 

Her spirit and enthusiasm for life inspires me and gives me hope. Here she is singing old show tunes at the top of her lungs with my partner. She was so kind.... never said a word about the fact that he can't carry a tune in wet paper bag!!!!

The four hour drive on Fred's day off was worth every single minute to be able to have  this memory of a lady who believed in me at 15 and has inspired me all my life!

Love & Hate

 "I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." 
Martin Luther King, Jr.
