i.m. Henry Ross Etter, 26 September 1940-13 March 2009
Yesterday was the fifth anniversary of my father's death. His continued goodness, in spite of so much adversity--being made redundant, being rehired years later at less than half the salary, never regaining the quality of position or salary he'd had, enjoying cycling daily for hours in his retirement only to become paralysed because of a medical accident, testifies to his character. If I had the chance to speak to him one more time, that's the first--or second--thing I'd say.
