He wan a hero. A real hero. Not JU ut hecauHe he wan Gen. George S. Patton's chauffeur and valet during World War II, but becolme of who he wan. His life taught me nomething I need to share. It's nomething we are lofting an individual, an families, and even an a country. It’n something that is there, like faith, even when everything else falls apart. You need it. I need it. The whole world needs it. You can’t build enough of it, It won't leave you when times get tough. It will carry you. It’s what makes real men and women honorable It s IsMiig under-appreciated. It’s what grew the fastest the weaker he got. It wus his character! Yes, character. Uke respect, it is not nomething you ask for; it's nomething you earn, hike strength, it's not something granted; its developed. It may only count to those who have it — hut character counts. He was not impressed by what someone accum pl win ti, but by what they had overcome. That's character He didn't take the easy way. He took the right way Thats character. He accepted responsibility for bis actions, faced the consequences without complaint and Ii vee! his life the beet he could. Thats character. His road map was the Scriptures; his compass was his heart; his passion was his family; hts character was his art. That’s what he taught me, and I think the message is worth repeating. JEFF POWELL, DUBLIN, OHIO DEAR JEFF: Please accept my sympathy on the painful low of your beloved grandfather. Obviously, your letter was writ* tan from the heart. It would have made a beautiful eulogy. Thank you for sharing the im* portant life lesson* your grandfather taught you. DEAR ABBY: I was raised in an old-fashioned home. I was taught to sew and cook and be a worthy wife and mother. I cooked and fed my family wholesome meals. unfortunately, one of my sons (“Tom" — not his real name) married a woman who never cooks. She waits until Tom comes home after a hard day’s work at the office, then •he Mends him out to some fast-fond K* ice to pick up their evening meal is is not just occasionally; this is every night of the week except when they go out to eat. I invite them to my home for dinner ss often as I can. Tom is a good husband and father. He doesn’t drink, smoke or gamble. He's a good provider and allows his wife to stay home and not work. My question is, why aren't mother* these days preparing their daughters for marriage? Don't you think men should consider this a requisite when courting? It could save marriages. OLD-FASHIONED AND GI AI) OF IT DEAR OLD FASHIONED: You and I are a generation apart from your son and his wife, so it would be easy for me to agree with you. However, these days it takes more than talent in the kitchen to make a marriage work. I find it telling that your Min is not the family member who is complaining. As bing as he has you. I'm betting neither he nor his wife will learn to rook.
