But one friend has seen me at my very worst. He and his wife have loved me through numerous illnesses, through the deaths of both of my parents, through the days when I should be where other people are not. He held me up when I was weak and hugged me when I was lonely. He guided me in grace when I wanted to judge.
These last few days have been spent saying goodbye to this treasured friend. It has been a great gift and a true joy to be with him and his family during these days.
Dennis, you are loved and you will be missed.
Drink long and deep the living waters, my friend...
