Rose's Storyfrom an email I received
The first day
of school our professor introduced himself and challenged us
to get to know someone we didn't already know. I stood up to
look around when a gentle hand touched my shoulder. I turned
round to find a wrinkled, little old lady beaming up at me
with a smile that lit up her entire being.
'Why are you in college at such a young, innocent
age?' I asked. She jokingly replied, 'I'm here to meet a rich
husband, get married, and have a couple of kids...'
'No seriously,' I asked. I was curious what may have
motivated her to be taking on this challenge at her age.
'I always dreamed of having a college education and
now I'm getting one!' she told me. After class we walked to
the student union building and shared a chocolate milkshake.
We became instant friends. Every day for the next
three months we would leave class together and talk nonstop I
was always mesmerized listening to this 'time machine' as she
shared her wisdom and experience with me.
course of the year, Rose became a campus icon and she easily
made friends wherever she went.
She loved to dress up
and she reveled in the attention bestowed upon her from the
other students. She was living it up.
At the end of
the semester we invited Rose to speak at our football banquet.
I'll never forget what she taught us. She was
introduced and stepped up to the podium. As she began to
deliver her prepared speech, she dropped her three by five
cards on the floor.
Frustrated and a little
embarrassed she leaned into the microphone and simply said,
'I'm sorry I'm so jittery. I gave up beer for Lent and this
whiskey is killing me! I'll never get my speech back in order
so let me just tell you what I know.'
As we laughed
she cleared her throat and began, 'We do not stop playing
because we are old; we grow old because we stop playing.
There are only four secrets to staying young, being
happy, and achieving success. You have to laugh and find humor
every day. You've got to have a dream. When you lose your
dreams, you die. We have so many people walking around who are
dead and don't even know it! There is a huge difference
between growing older and growing up.
If you are
nineteen years old and lie in bed for one full year and don't
do one productive thing, you will turn twenty years old. If I
am eighty-seven years old and stay in bed for a year and never
do anything I will turn eighty-eight.
Anybody can grow
older. That doesn't take any talent or ability. The idea is to
grow up by always finding opportunity in change. Have no
regrets. The elderly usually don't have regrets for what we
did, but rather for things we did not do. The only people who
fear death are those with regrets.'
She concluded her
speech by courageously singing 'The Rose.' She challenged each
of us to study the lyrics and live them out in our daily

degree she had begun all those years ago. One week after
graduation Rose died peacefully in her sleep.

Letters From our ReadersDear Peggy Jo,
A month or so ago there was a tragic fire in Commerce Twp.
A single mother was heroically pulled from the house by a
Commerce Firefighter. She sustained burns to greater then 50%
of her body and has been in critical condition in the DMC Burn
Unit. In the last week she was taken off the vent and her
condition upgraded from critical. Mercifully her two children
were not home the night of the fire. The children (5 and 8)
have been living with their grandparents since the fire while
they wait for their mom to be released from the hospital.
However, the family has some really pressing needs as they
have lost everything.
As many of you know I have been
playing with a band called the Lyin' Dogs this last year and a
half. One of our band members (Ken Tobin) is friends with one
of the firefighters that saved Ms Crain. When Ken heard the
story he offered to do a charity gig to benefit the family.
The Fireman thought this would be a great idea considering the
devastation to this family's home and mother's health. It's a
Matter of Taste restaurant in Commerce Twp also thought this
would be a fantastic thing to get involved in. So they have

The Event is on Wednesday Night June
13th with the restaurant opening the room at 6:00 and the
band playing from 8:00-10:00 PM. If for nothing else you can
come sing along, have a few drinks and heckle me so long as
you come with your $10. It should be a nice evening and a lot
of fun for a really worthwhile cause. It's A Matter Of
Taste is located at: 2323 Union Lake Rd Commerce Twp, MI
48382. Their number is 248-360-4150.
I hope to see
many of you on the 13th. All the best.

things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For out of the
overflow of his heart his mouth speaks.
