Rich: The spirit of giving can last for a lifetime

At a Thanksgiving luncheon, I was holding my 18-month-old nephew, Tripp, as I visited tables to speak to folks. I stopped and greeted a friend, patting him on his back.

Rich: Saying good-bye to a great character

After early church and Sunday school, Mama and I had hurried to the grocery store. An older friend was ailing badly with the flu, so I told Mama I'd make him some quick homemade chicken soup and she could make the cornbread muffins. Then, I'd run it over to him.
