I hope you’ve read Harry Stamps’ obituary. If you haven’t, click here.
OK, now that you have, let’s discuss.
What an amazing man. Not just because of the words written about his life. They are just words after all. No, what’s amazing about this former “ladies’ man, foodie, natty dresser, and accomplished traveler,” is that he raised daughters whose love and talent produced such an amazing obituary. He left his mark on them. Their memories of their dad are all over that page. And their hearts.
He left the world a more interesting place than he found it.
What kind of legacy are you leaving behind? How are you leaving your world? Harry Stamps lived a long and, from all accounts, amazing life. His footprints won’t wash easily away from the Gulf Coast sand.
God bless you Harry. I miss a man I never met. And thank you Alison and Amanda for sharing your dad’s life with us in the best obituary ever. You reminded us what’s really important in life.
P.S. Let’s honor his final wishes. Let’s write our congressmen to end this travesty known as Daylight Savings Time. Like Harry wanted, let’s go back to ‘God’s Time.’
