Reflecting on Fred's life, I find myself remembering his extraordinary humility and his interest in other people – both of which are to me Godly qualities.
I came across this anonymous quotation in Stephen Covey's “The Eighth Habit” the following day, which struck a chord.
“One hundred years from now, it will not matter what kind of car I drove, what kind of house I lived in, how much money I had in my bank account not what my clothes looked like. But the world may be a little better because I was important in the life of a child.” (Anon.)
Thanks to all those who've been praying for Fred and Ann and their family, or offering other support.
