Trailblazing random acts of kindness

A little over two years after my mother Norma passed away, my father went to Heaven to be with the woman he cherished. He was never the same once mom was gone.

For Throwback Thursday, I thought I would share this incredible note sent to me shortly after dad’s death.

meiners memorial note 2008


Thank you, Mr. & Mrs. Pollard. Your words gave all fourteen Meiners kids some comfort as we struggled with the loss of our guiding lights.

(transcript of note)

Terry –

Your dad was our milkman, our paper man, a wrestler (we all knew), and a devout person we all admired.

He paid unpaid milk bills for Germantown residents rather than stop their orders. Your mom baked them cakes.

How do you follow parents like these? I don’t know, but try.

The world is better for them, and Heaven is better with them.

God bless you & your family.
