George - Baby Steps in High Heels

George

A brother. A son. A husband. A friend.

My Friend.

At one time, my very best friend. My rock.

No time or distance will change the fact that your friendship saved my life.

Your presence truly made this world a better place.

Most people around the world today will not notice. But so very many will.

We will notice that the light around us shines a little dimmer today, and every day going forward.
But tonight we will also take notice of a brand new star in the sky. One that seems to outshine all others. And, if we listen very closely, we may just hear a hearty chuckle escape the night’s sky.

And we will know that it is you. For there is no mistaking your contagious laughter, your incredible joy.

Many wonderful things have been said and written about you in the last few hours. You were a friend, a listener, a brother, an angel. The one that resonates the most for me is this …

You were truly a gift.

Dear Lord-One day you will reveal to us your master plan, and we will share in your knowledge, your wisdom, and your understanding. Until that time, please hold us close and comfort us as our grieving hearts ask: Why?

  3. I have purposely stayed away from my blog, and yours because I wasn't ready to face this-I wasn't ready to express how I was feeling. Tonight I took a deep breath and came here knowing it would be hard. I think of him, his family, the guys and you daily...xoxoxo
