You rarely hear tender, heart warming stories like this one anymore.
In 1986, Jay Turnbull was on vacation in Kenya after graduating from Northwestern University On a hike through the bush, he came across a young bull elephant standing with one leg raised in the air. The elephant seemed distressed, so Jay approached it ver y carefully. He got down on one knee and inspected the elephant's foot and found a large piece of wood deeply embedded in it. As carefully and as gently as he could, Jay worked the wood out with his hunting knife, after which the elephant gingerly put down its foot. The elephant turned to face the man, and with a rather curious look on its face, stared at him for several tense moments. Jay stood frozen, thinking of nothing else but being trampled. Eventually the elephant trumpeted loudly, turned, and walked away. Jay never forgot that elephant or the events of that day.
Twenty years later, Jay was walking through the Chicago Zoo with his teenage son. As they approached the elephant enclosure, one of the creatures turned and walked over to near where Jay and his son Billy were standing. The large bull elephant stared at Jay, lifted its front foot off the ground, then put it down. The elephant did that several times then trumpeted loudly, all the while staring at the man.
Remembering the encounter in 1986, Jay couldn't help wondering if this was the same elephant. Jay summoned up his courage, climbed over the railing and made his way into the enclosure. He walked right up to the elephant and stared back in wonder. The elephant trumpeted again, wrapped its trunk around one of Jay's legs and slammed him against the railing, killing him instantly.
Probably wasn't the same elephant.
My dad, I miss him every day.

That was great.

A friend of mine sent me that in an e-mail a couple of days ago. It's just as funny this time though!
