When I was in grade school my father was the manager of the Coca Cola bottling plant in Harlan, Kentucky. He was a hard working man, a great husband and wonderful father.  He raised both Homer and I to make something out of our lives.  You may think I mean a financial success, but that is not what I’m talking about.  My father made sure that both Homer and I knew that he meant character and integrity.  My father was a man with a great deal of both.  He mirrored that for us, and that is why I reacted rather poorly yesterday because the fore mention email.


I simply wanted to set the record straight, I just couldn’t bear to think someone thought I would have neither character or integrity.  Then, unlexpectately, I started getting those wonderful responses from many of you.  I want to thank you for stepping up to the plate and reassuring me that one man’s opinion was not shared by everyone I know.  Now, of course I knew that was not me, but it certainly helped to have your kind words.  Thank you.  I’m genuinely grateful!
