My friend Jim (see post below) died this morning. His memorial service will be next Saturday to allow plenty of time for friends and family from all over the country to arrive.
I continue to work with his wife Barbara on a slide show of his life. It is going very well. I spent much of the day with her. What an honor to learn more about Jim and their life together!
Tonight I learned that J.T.'s mother has been hospitalized. I would ask for your prayers on her behalf and for their family. She is an amazing, wonderful woman whose health has started declining recently.
Please also remember Tech's niece, whom he mentioned on his blog.
Also of note: the passing of Coretta Scott King and Betty Friedan -- two women who did amazing things with their lives to make the lives of countless others richer and more significant, bringing hope to classes of people who, at the time, didn't enjoy all the benefits of our society. We've come a long way because of these women; it would be a tribute to them and all our heros to continue the work.
