Last night I learned that no matter how much we work to elevate the memory of our ancestors, it is the people standing right next to us that matter most. My wonderful host, Quincy Williams, collapsed at the podium after speaking to over a hundred people, following me. He is fine now. But what a scare. Quincy is the son of Dick Williams, one of our greatest tennis champions, and a survivor from the Titanic. Dick nearly lost his legs after hours in the water. He went on to thrive and excel without self-aggrandizement. Quincy carries all of his modesty and dignity forward. The people at Waverly Heights in the Philadelphia area were kind and appreciative.
