My Friend's Legacy


Last updated 4/22/2020 at 2:52pm

In the midst of the turmoil caused by the coronavirus, I have witnessed much behavior that gives me a warmed heart and hope for the future.

The kindness lies in my friend, who shares her bounty without fanfare. For example, she recently wound up at the local Animal Shelter and saw dog owners in tears because they had to put their dogs “down,” lacking money to buy food. My friend assessed the situation and donated $5,000 to the shelter for dog food.

Another example of her heartfelt generosity was her decision to support three African-American students at Brevard College. Those students will reap the results of that support for years to come.

My friend has lived a life of love. Let us remember people like her who are vibrant and giving. “This too, shall pass.” The virus will die out – my friend’s legacy will remain.
