I remember at probably my third AA meeting a really elderly lady arriving and sitting in what seemed generally regarded to be *her* seat at the table. I was astounded to learn she had been coming to meetings for 37 years. There was never a time she spoke that I wasn't deeply moved. I learned a few hours ago that she is now an angel. I am happy that she no longer has to suffer human frailties but I will miss her. I sincerely hope that one day I will possess just a fraction of her genuine humility and boundless love for others. I'll never forget her constant reminders that we all, no matter what bad things we've done, are precious children of God.
