Sandy, this is the moment where your friends have no words, no words that we think will matter to you, or lessen the pain. We may not have experienced such a love, built such success, nurtured children into men of integrity. So, all we can do is stand by; be ready for your call or note any day or night. Be ready to say we love you so much and wish you feel that love no matter the time of day, no matter the place.
Rest on the wings of our prayers for the ease of the pain, however slight, of the loss of one so extraordinary, so funny, so irreplaceable. A man who lived life to the brim.
To my dear friend Sandy and her extraordinary husband, Bill
