The Promise


On October first, I stood and watched as one of my closest friends in the world said her final goodbye to her father, as his ashes were buried in the Palmer Cemetery. This picture was taken there.

During what was probably the hardest time of my life, this same friend found the time and money to come and be with me when I needed her most.

Two people there for each other - definition of friendship? Might as well be...

The morning of my brother's accident, Lyndsi had written a song that seemed to be too well timed. She sang it at his memorial service. It would have fit perfectly into her dad's as well, but somehow she has made it John's song. It is something we will always have, and I thank her for that.

Katie, you know how to be a friend and I count you as a friend as well. I'll be thinking of and praying for Lyndsi and her family.

Will you ask Lyndsi if she has John's Song recorded? Because I would really like a copy of it. She has such a beautiful singing voice and an amazing way with words. I will always remember Mike fondly, he was always so funny and fun to be around.
