Hard to believe it's been 14 years since I've seen my friend. I drive by the accident scene every day. Mostly, I'm not sad because I know this is where you entered into Heaven and heard the words, "well done, thy good and faithful servant." You were such a kind Christian man, asking if I had any prayer concerns and stopping to talk for a few minutes. Your testimony still sounds out, even long after you've been gone. Thank you for being who God called you to be and doing the job you loved. A selfless servant to others. I look forward to seeing you again. May God continue to watch over and bless your family, here on Earth.
