Dad

Here’s a quote my dad always loved. Our family thought it was a good description of Dad’s life so we shared it at his funeral. I really like it.

“After all the allowances are made for the necessity of having a few supermen in our midst — explorers, conquerors, great inventors, great presidents, heroes who change the course of history — the happiest man is still the man of the middle class who has earned a slight means of economic independence, who has done a little, but just a little, for mankind and who is slightly distinguished in his community, but not too distinguished.”
