    Today I went to a memorial service for a friend who died suddenly last month.  The room was packed with family and friends who had been touched by this sweet, humble man and his unstinting warmth.  I bawled because I miss him, and because it reaffirms some element of the decency of people.

    Now I read this, and the decency and courage of amprather's grandfather, and the serendipitious good fortune of meeting bettyG makes me think that perhaps there is hope when we listen to our better angels.

    Oops,  now I'm crying again.  But in a good way.  So much for today's mascara.  Thank you, amprather, for sharing your remarkable story with this online community.
