On loosing a friend…

I’m going to loose a friend. I don’t know when, but it will be soon I’m sure.

He called me today to tell me the news. We used to work together. Even though he’s almost old enough to be my dad, we became very good friends. You could say I taught him every thing he knows about making microsections. He introduced me to Sonia Dada, literally. We enjoyed Entrain while we were working together. His sense of humor never seemed to fade. No matter how much work there was, or how difficult the jobs were, Eddie had a way of laughing through it. He’s still laughing. He has a positive outlook …in spite of the dismal diagnosis; stage 4 lung cancer.

Right now, I’m trying to figure out how to get to visit him. I have no idea how much time they think he has left. I was too scared to ask. I don’t want to cry when I talk to him.

If you think of it, please lift Eddie, and his wife Claire in prayer. I have no idea where they are with the Lord, so prayers that I might be able to share with them would be helpful.
