two years ago today, a good man met god. a good man who before and after his cancer diagnosis, had lived to prepare his family and his church for heaven. he left us well, and provided for, and loved. everyone who knew him has felt different losses of him simply not being here with us anymore, but he left us with so very much. mary still carries his counsel in her heart to share with us, ian speaks the same bold truths to me that steve would, ben has his simple faith and dependence in god, caleb looks exactly like him, devon knows god well as he did and lydia treasures her memories of dates and professor kooky stories at bedtime.
