This guy brings tears to my eyes.
I'd like to grow up someday to be like him and his workers at Worcester Wreath Co.
The 2004 description, different from the one at top, has better photos and is worth the read about how the seeds for this gratitude were sown when he was 12.
AP covered it, and they picked up the story as far away as San Diego. Fascinating how none of the above online stories showed this panoramic photo which a friend sent to me (click to enlarge). Gee, it would have had so much more impact. It's the least the papers could do for our fallen soldiers, I think, after all their emphasis on only the negatives.
