  •  I would call your father a great man, (9+ / 0-)

    in the same tradition as other great men (and women), who do their job, care about the needs of others, do the very best that they can, and generate the kind of devotion you show through your memories of him. Your husband, too, though I don't know either personally. "By their fruits you shall recognize them" is a bible verse (Matt 7:20) that I think means by the outcome of their lives you'll know how they lived. Surrounded by love and caring people, one must be putting out the same around them. Thank you, vetwife. I think you end on the note that the harvest you get from living a good (though sometimes hard) life is something whose value you can't measure materially. That is a huge reward.

    I discover myself on the verge of a usual mistake. ― Walt Whitman, Song of Myself
