“Truett Cathy's life celebrated the youth of America with respect, encouragement and opportunity like no one else I know. It was a life well lived.
On behalf of the civic leaders who comprise the advisory board of the Chick-fil-A Foundation, we wish to pass along our sympathies to the family and friends of Mr. Cathy. He has institutionalized a culture of kindness, thoughtfulness and giving, and that legacy will live on in the hearts and minds of bright young leaders. They will continue his work on earth and make positive contributions to our world. He was a notch above the rest of us, but we all rose higher because of him. He made humanity better.
I am personally honored to have a role in his benevolence and appreciate all that he has given to so many and the remarkable influence he has had on so many.”
Ted Blum, chairman, Chick-fil-A Foundation Advisory Board
