A kind man, to dig a hole, mix some cement and plant a basketball goal for neighborhood kids...or bring out his yard tractor in the snow and pull a long line of children and their sleds. And as I grew up, a nice guy to chew the fat with, have a beer, split some firewood and enjoy some time in the old neighborhood. I'll remember those things.
