Today Richie and I are off to a memorial service of a man who changed the world he lived in. This man was not just the father of a mate of mine, but an authority on Vitamin C deficiency, an Honorary Medical Advisor for Aboriginal Health in Australia and a world authority on Opals just to name a few achievements.
He wrote this book which we found in my mother-in-law’s library one day.
I’ll never forget the day when Archie met Richie at my mate’s wedding. Noticing his Aboriginality, Archie made a bee-line for Richie and almost didn’t leave his side for most of the day sharing stories about his time in Coober Pedy opal mining and stories of treating indigenous people in his travels.
So today’s Words are taken from Isaiah:
Isaiah 35:10 (NIV)
10 and those the LORD has rescued will return.
They will enter Zion with singing;
everlasting joy will crown their heads.
Gladness and joy will overtake them,
and sorrow and sighing will flee away.
Rest in Peace Archie until everlasting joy will crown your head and when you’ll enter Zion with singing.
For further insight into his the impact Archie made in our world, go to the Sydney Morning Hearld Legacy Guest Book to see more tributes made by the public.
