A beautiful tribute

Eric with his daughter Ruby
My brother in law's birthday is today and his beloved wife found this quote that in her words, "describe him perfectly." Wow. What a tribute to a husband. These are two people maintaining, fostering and reinventing love in the middle of raising 3 small children. Bless them, O God!!

"The way to God lies through love of people. At the Last Judgment I shall not be asked whether I was successful in my ascetic exercises, nor how many bows and prostrations I made. Instead I shall be asked: Did I feed the hungry, clothe the naked, an visit the sick and the prisoners? That is all I shall be asked." ~St. Maria of Paris

Happy birthday, Eric. The way you live your life to serve the downtrodden and needy inspires us all.
