In Memoriam

by Susan

Today is the tenth anniversary of the passing of my father.  Here are ten things he tried to teach me:

2.     Write on both sides of a paper.
3.     Turn off the lights when you leave a room.
4.     Wake up early.

9.     Life is a game of backgammon; part fate, part strategy.
10.  Always stand for justice.
