"The marvelous richness of human experience would lose something of rewarding joy if there were no limitations to overcome. The hilltop hour would not be half so wonderful if there were no dark valleys to traverse."
Greg Cafferty 23 May 1986 - 8 January 2009. One of my cousins who was buried on Saturday near my brother. (The cemetery is situated on a hill.)
He was born with Muscular Dystrophy and spent most of his life confined to a wheelchair. He inspired all he came in contact with and lived his short life more fully and with more joy than many twice his age.
