Sentiment of the Moment: The Man With a Fedora


Yesterday, I received news that one of my church's beloved members passed away. The details as to how it happened weren't divulged. All I know is that he has been battling serious ailments.

I remember every Sunday, he would greet me with a handshake and ask where my dad is. His presence made Sundays more meaningful because of his effervescent warmth and joy. Furthermore, his giddy spirit was always complemented with a distinct personal style. He was known to sport fedoras, porkpies, trilbies, you name it, and wear the sharpest suits. He was definitely ahead of the curve even in his old age.

Come next morning, it'll be a different experience. I'm sure his spot in the welcoming station will be filled by someone else. I'll miss him dearly.

People like that are institutions within the community. Church won't be the same. Condolences to his family and friends.

PS - For me, caffeine is diet lime coke, frozen coffee or chocolate. I've had very few cups of hot coffee that I enjoyed.
