What can I say except that he’s a close friend and I’ve known him for over 20 years. We first met doing volunteer work at SEHERR in Poplar Bluff, MO. I have watched him over the years find his strength through God. He has been an inspiration to me for longer than he knows. But I don’t tell him that lest he be less humble. <LOL> We had lost touch over the years but reconnected when I moved to St. Louis, MO. He recently became a Friar with the Order of St. Francis. I’ve watched his life change with a deeper walk with God. I can say that I’ve never seen him as happy as he is now. There is something so very special about that. I pray that God will continue his blessing and good life in Sam.
