A tribute to Dr. Winter

During the conference we attended this past week, one of the speakers shared the tribute he read at the memorial service for my mentor, Dr. Ralph Winter.

I found the following comment--with which he closed his eulogy--at least thought-provoking.

I'm not going to get the words exactly right--and I have the feeling this must have been borrowed from someone else--but the gist of the comment was this:
Most of us, as we walk through life, look at things the way they are and ask, "Why?" Dr. Winter was a man who looked at the future, and the way things might be, and asked, "Why not?"
I would like to be that kind of person!
