Remember the rock tumber your parents gave you while growing up? I came across, collected, and added rough stones, some jagged stones of different sizes, mostly grey... curious what color and shape they would be after churning together in the rock tumbler. Each stone defined by the experience in the tumbler together, each rock coming out different, smooth and colorful, each with it's own new version of itself.

I feel grateful that my journey with Mr. Mott, Edith and his lovely family, especially Allison, has been a bit like that. Bringing generations of Mott family friends together, each with their own Mott friendship/mentorship, each supported and inspired each other. We all hold inside us a bit of Mr. Mott's character, unwavering ethics, and consistent commitment to inspired excellence, and Mrs. Mott's strength, grace and love.
In many ways, the Mott's together, defined generations of civil society's ethical compass and love of the greater good, mentoring leaders who are standing on their shoulders today.

I came across John Maxwell's quote and thought of Mr. Mott:
“One of the greatest values of mentors is the ability to see ahead what others cannot see and to help them navigate a course to their destination.” He inspired so so many!

With much love to Allison, the entire Mott family and community of trusted friends. May care and love of those around you provide comfort and peace to get you through the days ahead. My most sincere condolences.
