Friends, a dear long time friend lies upon what is essentially his death bed, he has had a full and gloriously wonderful life filled with family and accomplishment. While I know as do all that love him that he is at the end of his days I ask that all those who can and will offer up a prayer for his comfort as he passes into the next life and for the comfort of his family in their grief and sense of loss. He is a good man and deserving of God's comforting touch, he name is Gary McGhee and has published a couple of fine books amongst these are "Honey Creek Farewell" and "The Blue Pool". In any event I have sat at this mans table and he at mine and I count him a dear and honored friend, a fellow veteran although he is far my elder. As we who love him grieve I wish to thank in advance all those who offer kind words and prayers. Please know beyond doubt they are appreciated! Thank You friends.
