    David was one of my best friends in High School. A man I could talk to and who had a good sense of the world around us. We played on the edge of the side lines. Sometimes just over the line. The key thing is.. as we grew older it became clear where the side lines were . We met up many years later and had a good talk. We both had changed. Both his and my perspective changed to looking at Jesus for guidance. Interesting thing how God takes people through a life on the sidelines to a win the Superest bowl of life. Interesting thing how friendship and behavior changes over the years. Funny thing is David, no matter how far our out of bounds, is still my friend. I am so blessed to have had David as a part of my life. Did you get to talk with that great man? He will be missed.,,, and so the tears flow…
