I posted this a few months ago, but it’s appropriate for us to watch it again. John Wooden, who will be described mostly as a college coach , died today. It would, perhaps, be more fitting to note that he was married to the same woman for 53 years and that his last love, was his first love. She’s been gone for more than 20 years, but he still wrote her love letters. She was a lucky woman.
