    Thank you..

    The skill of communication consists of two parts: speaking and listening. To master and become an effective communicator is a difficult task that requires constant improvement, enhancement and lots of trial & error.

    An angel in disguise.

    G-d is love — certainly His core essence is best understood by what we call love, with its courage, its patience, its creative force, its kindness and faithfulness and so on . Small gestures of care in a time of grief or despair are amplified to great magnitude. I’ve experience that first hand, as many of us have. When numbed by heartbreak and sorrow the mere reaching from a stranger is like a lifeline being thrown. Isn’t it good that Don Ritchie wasn’t too busy to notice what was happening, or too in a hurry to break out of his routine.

    So many have a desire to help, to heal, but we just don’t get around to it. In many ways the complexities of post modern life are an evil conspiracy against us, our humanity, and the fullness of life.

    I would feel blessed to be able to dwell in the moment even a fraction as well as Don Ritchie. May G-d continue to bless Don Ritchie and his family, now and forever.

    This is such a great story of the way we really SHOULD be. I’ve read it several times…cuz there are times we ALL need some kind words…or just the comfort of a friend to “be” there for you.
    Don will be most blessed by HaShem for his courage & big heart.

    This caught me out of the blue. I glanced at the title, figured it was worth a read, and a scant sixty seconds later find myself holding back tears.

    Thank you for the object lesson and may we be worthy of emulating it.
