After experiencing racism 40 years earlier, I said that I would not be caught dead in Georgia.

I experienced a tale of two lives, one before coming to Georgia and one after settling in Lula.

I was a native of Ohio but I went to Boston and I served in the U.S. Navy Seabees during World War II.

My wife and I ran a foster group home for emotionally disturbed teenage girls and also a group hope for mental health patients.

My experiences have taught me down through the years that you can’t shoot all the dogs because some have fleas.

After seeing an ad in the paper about classes being offered at Brenau University Learning and Leisure Institute, I had some reservations about whether I would be accepted.

All of my fears vanished after meeting the charming executive director of the BULLI program.

This lovable and charming person’s name is Kathy Amos.

Kathy, you have done so many wonderful things for my wife and I, including wonderful poems you wrote for my wife’s funeral, that I can’t find the words to express our appreciation.

Thanks for having me and teaching me in your personal classes.

I want to express my gratitude for taking and caring for me at your sister’s recital in Atlanta and recommending me for the Wisdom Project.

Due to my physical condition, I will be unable to attend your retirement party in person, but my spirit will always be with you wherever you are.

I thank God in you for helping me to seek and take control of my own happiness, and may God guide, bless and keep you safe wherever you may be.

I will always love and respect you forever, Kathy.
