What You Can Take With You By Joseph Mazzella I stopped at a local convenience store the other day to fill up my gas tank before heading back home. After pumping the gas, I headed in, grabbed a pack of gum, and got in line to pay. In the front of the line was an older woman, holding a toddler in her arms. Behind her and just in front of me was an older man with white hair and a white shirt. He smiled kindly at me and patiently waited while the woman struggled to hold her child while she cpunted Out change with her free hand. She searched twice in her pocket book, but still didnh have enough money to pay for the two gallons of milk she had brought to the counter. I could see her lips tremble and her eyes moisten as she apologized and picked up one of the gallons to take back. It was then that the older man stopped her. With a gentle smile, he told the cashier that he would pay for the milk. The look of relief on .the poor womanfs lace touched my heart. She thanked the older man, while he smiled again and said not to worry about it. As she exited the store, I .could see her eyes were still moist, but this time the tears were for a different reason. As he paid for the milk and his own items, the white- haired angel-in-disquise smiled at me one last time. Then as he was walking out of the store, he gave me a wink and said, "You can't take it with you, you know." What he said is true. You wonft need any pockets for the clothes you are buried in. Every dime you have made in this world has only been a loan for you to Use for a short time. Still, there are a few things that the white-haired gentleman and all of us will be taking with us when we do go to our final home. Every look of relief that we bring to another will go with us, every bit of love we share and kindness we do. Every moment of learning and joy will come with us, as well. And every smile that we bring to God's face will be waiting for us when we et there. ( Mazzella is a fre elancer from Nicho- las County. He is a Glenville State College alumnus.) i i iii Obituaries I r i CARL R. CARR Carl R.
