Grandpa Nate: Going back a number of years to the event of Jos's bar mitzvah when, on the Friday evening preceding the ceremony on Saturday morning he was rehearsing his speech. He rushed through it at express train speed. Both you and Mom suggested to him to slow down his delivery. Of course on Saturday morning on the bemah his delivery was masterful. Mom and I were on the bemah after having been called up for an aliyah. A little later as the the Rabbi was concluding the service Jos was standing by the ark with us and he softly whispered to us, "Golly, I was good wasn't I?"
