I have to share this today, on his 76th birthday, though he asked me not to out him on his day… because so many friends and loved ones have been following his journey, and he’s overwhelmed by all the love. But not quite a month ago this man died in front of me and was brought back to life by a series of miracles administered by angels passing as strangers.
And though I am beyond grateful for Dick Schmidt every day, on this day, my own imperfect heart bursts with adoration for this kind, kind man, whose great heart has been repaired by talented and loving hands, to give him more time to share his generous self with so many who admire and love him.
Hauoli la hanau, Dickie. Happy birthday to you!
