I have just come across this blog about Edmund N. Carpenter, II-   http://www.huffingtonpost.com/daphne-oz/finding-my-mentor-mr-carp_b_397049.html and wanted to share it with you.

Mr. Carpenter died in December 2008 leaving behind a wife, six children and fifteen grand-children but most importantly and inspired life.  Below is an excerpt of an essay he wrote at age 17.

“It may seem very strange to the reader that one of my tender age should already be thinking about that inevitable end to which even the paths of glory lead. However, this essay is not really concerned with death, but rather with life, my future life. I have set down here the things which I, at this age, believe essential to happiness and complete enjoyment of life.”
