Jeffrey reports that Floye Ardrey will be celebrating her 93rd birthday this Sunday (April 18) at her son Bob’s house in Perkins, Oklahoma. I think her birthday is actually April 19. Those of us who can’t attend in person will certainly be thinking about Floye and what she means to us. I’ve been guilty of not telling her enough how much I love and respect her, and of not letting her know how often I really do think about her. She’s an inspiration to anyone who would strive to lead a “good life” in the Aristotelian sense, and yet she would be the first to protest that she possessed exemplary qualities. If everybody had even half her wisdom and character, the world would be a heck of a lot better place.
