I lost a friend yesterday.
is was one of my closest friends.
I still can’t even believe he’s gone. Just like that.
I hope he knew how highly I thought of him. He was a man of integrity in a world that has forgotten what that means.
I am so grateful that my two sons were able to watch him, know him, and learn from him what it means for them to a man who keeps his word… To be a good friend… To be a good husband… To be a good follower of Jesus… Willie was a great example of each of those… He was a great example for them to learn from.
Willie was a great example for me to learn from.
I miss my friend already. I suspect I always will.
We will see each other again, my friend. I look forward to that Day.
