His wife Ethel wrote the following about him: When he is gone people will say, He is a good man, sincere, orthodox, etc. They will speak of him as the public knows him, but the man they have in mind is very different from the man I know. The man I know is a kind, loving, husband and father whose great ambition in life is to make his family happy, entirely forgetful of self in his efforts to do this. He is the man who lulls to sleep the fretful child, who tells bedtime stories to the little ones, who is never too tired or too busy to sit up late at night or get up early in the morning to help older children with perplexing problems.
