Dear Jeff:

Sports writer Mitch Albom went to see his dying university professor Morrie Schwartz to every Tuesday & chronicled it in a book called "Tuesdays With Morrie", which was also turned into a television film starring Double Academy Award (TM) Winner Jack Lemmon as Morrie. Prof. Schwartz was featured on American Broadcasting Company (ABC) News "Nightline With Ted Koppel" in an interview about having Lou Gehrig's Disease or Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) & dying from it. They talked about life, death, and a wide array of topics & the professor had many wise idioms to impart.

"Accept who you are; revel in it."
