I have been visiting Bill D at the Sarasota Memorial Hospital.
Bill (86) is a former U.S. Navy Captain, and a current parishioner at St. Boniface Church here in SRQ.
He had a fall a couple of weeks ago as a result of which he is in the hospital, because that fall resulted in a broken hip.
Despite this Bill D is unfailingly cheerful. The word "whine" is not in his vocabulary.
I saw him today (with his utterly fabulous wife Emily D.)
I told them that I have re-named Bill.
Henceforth I will refer to him as "Mr. Be Of Good Cheer".
Such a powerful example.
