A True Man For All Seasons
Ten years ago today Comer A. Donnell of Lebanon, TN passed away at the age of 89. The man I called "Granddaddy" was more than just a grandparent to me - he was a true "Man For All Seasons" whose integrity, humility and compassion were inspiring to family, friends and colleagues.
Those who knew him miss him very much. Perhaps they'll agree with me that a decade later our strongest feelings when thinking about him are grounded in gratitude. We're grateful because the blessing of knowing him was such a wonderful gift.
Our family mounted an Internet tribute site about him several years ago. If you'd like to know why those who knew him cherished him so much click here and I think you'll make that discovery through his life story and pictures.
