My great-grandmother used to say, “Live your life in such a way that when you die, even the Postman will miss you.” I never thoroughly understood those words until Jimmy Fesmire, a prominent figure and deacon in my church, passed away in a car accident after attending a Sunday morning service on a clear, sunny day in May last year.
