Top Three Life Lessons From Dad
Presented by Millard and Linda Fuller’s four children at the
Millard Fuller Memorial Celebration, March 14, 2009
• Power of persistence – if it’s worth doing once it’s worth doing twice
• Love your wife – kiss and hug your wife in front of your children often.
• Write back to whoever writes to you and copy anybody who might be remotely interested in its relevance.
Kim Fuller Isakson
• When the going gets tough, the tough get going – he lived by it and he repeated it often.
• The importance of a home – for a person or a family – before they can focus on school or work, they first must have a decent place to lay their head.
• Love – demonstrated through his exuberant love of us, the exuberant love of our mother and his unending love for his fellowman.
• Treat everyone with dignity and respect – no matter their race, religion or standing in life – every human being has worth.
• Live with courage – stand up and speak for what you believe – being silent is just the same as giving your approval.
• Live with integrity – be honest – if you have a problem with someone, don’t complain behind their back – go to them directly and work it out.
Georgia Fuller Luedi
• One of the greatest gifts God has given is the gift of memory.
• Anything worth doing at all is worth doing right.
• Whenever I’d have a pity party – my dad would sing: “Count your blessings, name them one by one; count your blessings, see what God has done.”
Georgia Luedi’s children:
• If at first you don’t succeed, try and try and try again.
• He wasn’t too serious; he was funny; he wasn’t too busy to play with me.
• He played with me.
• Never give up!
