Letters to the Editor

Letter: Life lessons

So what have I learned from 85 years of living? The Big 10:

Control yourself first.

Prefer doing to having.

Lead from the front.

Take the hardest job.

Encourage others.

Be kinder than you feel.

Say “please,” “thank you” and “you’re right.”

Meet stress with humor.

Be there when it matters.

Love wisely and forever.

— Dale Gerboth
