"You Can Disagree Without Being Disagreeable"

A good friend of mine died quite suddenly last week and the funeral was today.  He was very well know and well liked in the community and I've known his wife for most of my life (long before he even knew her).  Because of the amount of people who knew him, his funeral was extremely large. 

One of the eulogies read included the quote that is the title of this post.  This friend said that when the two of them both moved to this area, an older gentleman befriended them and that was one of the things he told them - you can disagree without being disagreeable.  He felt this was how Gordon chose to live his life, and I agree.  I hope to meet more people like him.  He will be greatly missed.
