I told you earlier that a dear friend of mine died a few days ago. Today he no doubt helped delay a pretty serious ice/snow storm so that his funeral and burial could continue as scheduled. He was an agressive defender of human life and will be sorely missed, but I believe that he will be an even greater help to us now. Below is a picture of the pro-life display that a few of the local kids (including 3 of Dave’s) and I put up downtown on the 4th of July, something we do every year. Each year Dave and his family are a tremendous help for this. One of the many ways Dave contributed to the movement. I saw Dave as an inspiration for my own modest efforts to protect and defend life and I will continue to seek his council now that he’s gone. Please keep his wife, 5 children and 3 grandchildren (one is on the way) in your prayers.
