I took a photo recently and posted it in the "Mystery/Fun Photos" section just now. It's not really a mystery and not about a fun topic, but I wanted to acknowledge a Standish born in Cochise County, Arizona, who gave his life for his country in World War II. When you have a chance, please visit his writeup and say thank-you yourself.
Tomorrow are the services for President George H. W. Bush, a descendant of Francis Cooke, John Howland, and the 3 Tilleys who were passengers on the Mayflower. He exemplified many of the qualities we would like to think our pilgrim ancestors all had and that we inherited at least a little bit of. I learned recently in the genealogy course I'm taking that those ancestors' DNA should be immeasurable or gone by now (400 years and a dozen generations later.) However, we can all strive to be "points of light" for the world around us. RIP, Cousin George.
