My dad, who was 95 at the time, passed on a bit of wisdom to me that stays with me. I asked how he was doing. He said, “Ray, I’m coming out of Mass and a woman says, ‘Louie, how you doing?’ I told her, ‘I’m doing great.’ She smiled and went on her way. Tell them you’re doing great. That’s what they want to hear, and maybe you’ll believe it too.” Thanks dad.
