The Daily EO: March 30, 2012

I got an e-mail from Jack Birtch today.  It wasn’t a personal, nor was it particularly interesting.  It said “Here is our new e-mail address”.  I haven’t talked to Jack Birtch in over 5 years.  He was – and presumably still is – a kind gentle person who looked like a kind person.  I picked him out of a list of people with their pictures because I liked the look of his face, and the warmth in his eyes.  Jack was exactly what I was looking for.

Does he remember me?  I think so, I hope so, because he is an important person in my life.

I don’t know if I did an adequate job of telling him this.  If he knew how much I appreciated the humour, warmth, sincerity, and gravity he brought to the situation.   I hope so.  If not, thanks Jack, we are sure glad you were there, and I’m sending you a note to tell you so.

March 30, 2012 Extra-Ordinary:  Thinking of Jack Birtch – officiant at our wedding and getting the chance to tell him how he was appreciated.
