A Fitting Memorial for a Fitting Cause

Tomorrow my husband and I will drive to the University of Minnesota to attend a scholarship luncheon. At the luncheon we will meet the two medical students who received scholarships, established by the family, in memory of my father-in-law. We think the scholarships are a fitting memorial to an outstanding physician and father. For one thing, the scholarships honor academic achievement. They are practical as well, helping students who really need the help. Though Dad won't be with us physically, he will be with us in spirit. We will think about his marvelous sense of humor, his never-ending intellectual curiosity, the leadership positions he held, and his role as the family patriarch. Are you looking for ways to honor a loved one? Think about establishing a scholarship in your loved one's name, a fitting memorial for someone you loved so much.
