The piece on Raphael Cordero touched my heart. My own grandpa lived to the age of 102. Grandpa taught me many things, but the most important was probably: Don't sweat the small stuff.
If I can spend $10 on a football pool, certainly I can match that amount on Cordero's effort to organize the luncheon planned for May 20th for the centenarians.
Where do I send a check?
