How inspiring it is to be part of an experience, hearing about and honoring someone who attained the goal you aspire to reach one day.
Living to 100.
A full century. Not just a full circle, but a full moon, a supermoon, the biggest and brightest you have ever seen. If there are five-hundred twenty-five thousand six-hundred minutes in a year, well I don’t even want to do the math on what that is when you live past the century mark. I don’t love math anyway, so let’s talk about a life in words, instead of numbers. After all, that’s the ultimate goal, to live a life worth talking about!
Did you hear the one about…? That was the classic opening line for Herbert “Hunky” Matz. I heard a great story yesterday, listening to his son Ron talk about his dad’s impact on other people. I met Hunky a few times and listened to some of his stories, laughed at his jokes and basked in the glow of his larger-than-life personality. I can’t do justice in writing about all he accomplished, nor tell his life story here. In fact I would be doing an injustice to try, because the Ronster did such a terrific job of eulogizing his Dad, I’m simply going to share the link below and let Ron tell his dad’s story. NEVER in my life have I seen a round of applause after a eulogy, but I witnessed one yesterday. That was inspiring. A true celebration of a man who lived a life worthy of that applause.
100 years, 2 months, and 23 days. Every day lived to the fullest. A life worthy of not just applause, but a standing “O”.
“May you live as long as you want to, and want to as long as you live.”
– Herbert “Hunky” Matz.

Until next time, thanks for taking the time.
