This past Tuesday, Bill Rutherford died at 89 years old. According to his obituary, he was an artist, an insurance salesman, a loving husband to Bonnie and a father of four, a grandfather of 11 and a great-grandfather of six. I adored this book when I was little, as I'm sure countless other children did way back when. Today, I raise a glass and tip my hat to a life well-loved and a legacy that will live on in the hearts of his own children as well as the children he did not know, whose lives he touched all the same. Rest in peace, my friend.
