Conversation in the desert cemetery brought real clarity

This is just outside the north gate of White tanks cemetery, a Maricopa County-run cemetery, the final resting place of hundreds of indigent souls, most of whom have died in the last 15 years in metro-Phoenix, Arizona.

I‘m back in Champaign-Urbana, IL now, safely back from Phoenix, Arizona. Just a few days before Jennifer and I left our Scottsdale, AZ, condo, I met Jeff working in a cemetery on the far southwest side of Phoenix.  If you would like to know how a truly grateful person feels about having been given another chance in life, you will want to read my Champaign-Urbana News-Gazette Sunday  column for today (August 13, 2017). You will see how Jeff truly has come to understand and appreciate his new chance at life!
