Woody's Kindness

Woody was the gentlest of people who never even raised his voice in anger, much less ever hurt anyone. He refused to kill any animal except in self defense, such as a biting mosquito. He was a vegan, a practicing Buddhist, a social worker who worked with children and the needy, and an activist for social and environmental justice.

Some sense of the kind of person Woody was can be gotten by reading some of the many letters in local newspapers, such as the ones listened below, or sketches by his friends, such as Zak's eulogy.
