I am saddened to hear about the passing of my friend Mary Wilson. I got to know Mary when I was the Chairman of HDI (The Humpty Dumpty Institute), for which Mary was a spokeswoman.

“Everybody can be great…because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”
— Martin Luther King Jr.
