Thank You, Sam
Thanks to Sam and Wystan Stevens, we came to think a little like townies, not college transplants.
Sam inspired his son, Bob, to come up with the Observer's enduringly popular "Test of the Town," a photo quiz featuring a detail of a central Ann Arbor building.
On some sort of cosmic level there IS a Heaven.
Maybe it is the dissolution of ego, the reward for a humble and connected life, or "what happens to you when there's no you there," in the words of Juanita Solis, my Albion friend and fellow cradle Catholic.
Sam Breck, in some form, is looking down from Heaven on those of us here still on Planet Earth. His spirit and genes live on in his family, Bob and Bill, and their children. His spirit lives in his friends forever.
How much Sam has taught us, in so many arenas of life!
THANK YOU, Sam! And thanks, Bob, for your splendid idea and wonderful photos.
