This poem is dedicated to Betty Countryman.
Your caring heart
will live forever in mine.........Go Bama!
To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a little better; whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.|
This is the meaning of success.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
