(Link to David's Obituary)
Earlier this week, I was told that my friend, David, surrounded by his family had passed away after a battle with cancer.
I met David many years ago. They may have been the years that he would not consider to be his best, but it was in those moments that he was able to bring out the best in me. He taught me so much about life, dignity, humanity, and the deeper needs of the soul. His influence on my life will never be forgotten, and the words he spoke to me will always be remembered (http://nwahomelessness.blogspot.com/).
Many may know a little of his story of being without a home, but I doubt may know the kindness and grace that he carried with him. Maybe this short video will give some insight into that kindness and grace because it will be what marks his life in my memory.
