|Receiving a blessing on their 50th Anniversary|
Despite its woes, people still do move to California. One couple that we've been pleased to make the acquaintance of is Warren and Nellie Wong, who emigrated from New Zealand and landed in Indiana by way of Harvard. After Warren retired from his mathematics professorship at Notre Dame, they relocated to the Bay Area to be closer to their children and grandchildren. In a short while both have became invaluable members of the community, volunteering and leading many activities.
At the end of each service the minister includes in the benediction this quote by Fredric Amiel: " Life is short and we do not have much time to gladden the hearts of those who walk the way with us. So be swift to love and make haste to be kind." Wise advice, followed by Warren, Nellie, and others whom we are privileged to know.
