Beautifully written article about a lovely man. I'm definitely sharing this on our social media. We can all learn much from Izzy Sharp. I hope his wife never tells him to retire.

While I was teaching Hospitality Management in small college in Toronto.
I have asked if Nan, Executive Secretary to Mr. Sharp, is it possible for Mr Sharp sign a individual letter on his ethical credo, "the Golden Rule", which was in the text book.

I have asked student how about if get a letter signed by Mr Sharp, which you can display when on your wall along with your diploma: students thought, I was just joking, how will this possible to get hold of such a busy person who will sign individual letter. A week later, everyone received a personal letter with their name on, they just could not believe.
I am very obliged of his kindness

Thank you, Nan Wilkinson, his Executive Secretary who actually got the letters signed. I never met Mr. Sharp, but he is always a Mentor to me.

May God bless him with health and long life to continue his service to world of Hospitality.

“It is relatively easy to be thankful for the most important and obvious parts of life…but truly happy people find ways to give thanks for the little, insignificant trifles…the smell of fall in the air, the fragment of a song that reminds you of when you were a kid. ”
