My brother sent me a link to this piece written to the great-grandson of John Wooden (if you don’t know who John Wooden is, shame on you!). This little snippet really got to me:
I believe your great-grandfather was spared so he could be an example of how to live morally and simply and well.
For instance, he and your late great-grandmother, Nell, had the truest love I’ve ever seen. Junior high school sweethearts, they were married 53 years until Nell died in 1985. To this day, he writes her a love note every month and sets it on her side of the bed. He has never kissed anyone else.
I have nothing else to say…
