Cal Thomas: beautiful tribute to his brother on his "valuable life"

Cal Thomas writes a beautiful tribute to his brother Marshall who died January 5th at the age of 62. He was diagnosed with Down Syndrome shortly following his birth.
"In an age when we discard the inconvenient and unwanted in order to pursue pleasure and a life free of burdens, this may seem strange to some. I recall a line from the long-running Broadway musical, "The Fantasticks": "Deep in December, it's nice to remember, without a hurt the heart is hollow."

Marshall Thomas' "hurts" filled a number of hollow hearts.
At the end of the Christmas classic "It's a Wonderful Life," George Bailey reads an inscription in a book given to him by Clarence, his guardian angel: "Remember, no man is a failure who has friends."
No life is a failure when it causes so many to care for others. At that my brother succeeded magnificently."
