Common Wealth: A Derby to remember

by
Kentucky Derby

In my mind’s eye, Joyce “Pinkie” Harris will forever wear a stylish Derby hat, festooned by her talented hands with flowers and ribbons.

When my wife, Carla, invited her to this year’s Kentucky Derby, my mother-in-law jumped at the chance for a “bucket list” experience. She grew up near Churchill Downs, but in her 78 years she never saw the Derby. She didn’t cash big tickets, but she had a big time.

Those memories are so special now. Two weeks ago, Joyce unexpectedly passed away.

Experiences make us richer than possessions ever can. What’s on your bucket list?
