Abstract: The title of the book gives a synopsis of Robert Foote's life. On page 157 a list of 64 Thank You slides tells the story of a fine dairy farm family life in the depression, University of Connecticut classmates, and on to World War II. Dr. Foote's superb soldiers of Japanese ancestry taught him much about the meaning of life as they have remained friends for over 60 years. Family and university life and challenges over 60 years at Cornell are detailed. Copies of diaries, Christmas letters and reflections of a loving mother when he was 61 years old are inserted to provide unedited personal accounts of life and feelings.
