Someone died recently -- someone I didn't know personally -- who helped make the world a better place.
A person whose optimism was infectious -- who brought smiles to people's faces.
A person who, throughout their long career, was compassionate and worked to serve the least among us.
I think it's only appropriate that their legacy be honored. I urge you to go read their obituary and follow their parting wishes. I know I will:
In lieu of flowers or donations to charity, please give your next waitress/waiter a generous tip.
