I never really got to know Dr. Young well but always judged him by how terrific his son Jerry turned-out and knew that he must have been a wonderful father. I wish I had had the chance to thank Dr. Young for his influence and for being such a great role-model for Jerry and hope he realized how much I appreciated him for all the kind and decent virtues he instilled upon his son.
