Before my father’s funeral I was looking for something he once sent me. I never found it. Most likely it is in my collection in Savannah. Today I read something that sent me to a very large old family Bible. Paging through it I found a typewritten copy of the same quote, I’m sure was also typed by my Dad (typewriters have their own fingerprint). In my memory the quote was about introducing your child to a living faith in Christ, truly speaking about a life of significance, but I see now it is also about what that means over a lifespan.
The other thing that struck me as typical of my father is his sense of beauty. I love that he typed that border on the top and bottom.
