Saying Goodbye

Sunday night I went to the memorial service for my friend, Byron. It was amazing. The church was full and there were many, many people who spoke of his impact on their lives. His wife gave us such a beautiful picture of this man who had fought his demons and through his relationship with God was able to build a whole new life. He didn't abandon the people who were still struggling with their addictions but worked to mentor the men who still lived in the residential halfway house he was in when I first men him just a few years ago.
He was a blessing to many people in his life and in his memory many more people got to hear of his faith and love for God. I can only hope to leave that kind of legacy behind me when my time in this life is over.
Loves to All~
