I can't say we were close, but I worked with him for several years—I hated watching him slip away and my heart aches for the suffering I know he endured, especially toward the end. He was a man of faith and Saturday's funeral was a testament to his spirit.
So long, Friend. Catch you on the flip side.
I'm turning off comments for this post and will take your kind thoughts as read. Please check in with me next Monday for a post which pretty much wrote itself maybe a month ago, and of which I'm rather proud.
Wishing you all a wonderful week.
