Lets stop and think about the word witness, not necessarily in a religious sense, but from an earthly view of human reaction. All of us witness things every day. We see varying circumstances, situations and attitudes all around us, both good and bad. As we witness these things about other people, wouldn't it be a good idea for us to ponder what other people see or witness in us? Each of us individually sets a standard of behavior, thought and expression linked to ourselves. In doing so, we naturally provide a scene or knowledge for others to witness. The things we do and the things w« say cause people to talk about us favorably or gossip about us unfavorably. We create our own image, good or bad. We •control the destinies of our image in the minds and thoughts of others. When we can be rightfully proud of what others witness in us, we gain an inner gladness that automatically portrays a better, more likeable image .... MRS. BUDDY HOWARD, HOWARD FUNERAL HOME.
