Today, September 12, 2008,
our world lost an amazing man.
David Holder lost his 14 month battle with Lymphoma today.
If you didn't know Dave,
I wish you had.
He was kind, and warm, and funny.
He had these awesome brown puppy dog eyes
that crinkled when he smiled,
which was very often.
He was my brother in law Mike's business partner and best friend.
Dave fought this battle with a courage like I have never seen.
Even when taking chemo and in times of severe pain,
he thanked each person for their prayers and hope.
He made sure every person who cared for him
knew how much he loved them.
His wife, Liza, was so loved by him.
Her strength and love for him were remarkable.
I fall so very short, every day.
If you would like to leave a note of sympathy,
you can go to David's blog.
Even if you choose not to, please lift his wife, children and family
up in your prayers.
And God, give him a hug from me, would you?
