LOUISVILLE MAGAZINE 10.14 55 19. "There's a really great acupuncturist I know. After my husband died, I went to him and said, 'I don't know if you do any- thing about grief, but if you want to, here I am.' I asked him what he does to relax. He said, 'I ballroom dance with an instructor.' I said, 'What does your wife do to relax?' He said, 'She plays ping pong.' That frst Christ- mas without my husband, I bought a ping pong table as a gift to myself." — Brown 20. "I call every time there's a death in our church. We've got 35,000 members, as many as seven deaths a week. I don't know the majority of these people, but when they get a phone call, this really big place feels really small." — Stone 21. "I decided I was going to the University of Virginia for law school. I go to the mail- box on my birthday. It's a rejection letter. Devastating to me. First time I ever had a plan that didn't go exactly as I planned. "But, yeah, I'm over it. No, really I am. I am! Will there be a time when I will be ac- cepting an award and will say UVA rejected me? Absolutely. That will happen. I said it then: They will regret this because I'm going to be somebody, and they're going to wish I went to their school. I still have my rejec- tion letter, which I'm never throwing away." — Williams 22. "I'm an only child. We now have three kids and a dog. This is a very different environment for me. I had to get used to experiencing noise that wasn't my own." — Carolyn Tandy 23. "I wrote four handwritten notes today." — Stone 24. "Golf. That's the way I compete now. My knees are gone." — David Tandy 25. "If I read a book, it's a business book. The last novel? I don't know." — Oyler 26. "Tonight I'm having a fundraiser for Angela Leet, who's running for Metro Council. She's a registered Republican; I'm Dave Stone 53, senior pastor, Southeast Christian Church Kent Oyler 56, president and CEO, Greater Louisville Inc.
