I look around at home and work and everyday I am reminded how much JD did for the Seminary and me personally. He was kind and generous in many ways. I will miss my friend, we shared a lot of good times discussing sports for the last 11 years. I know he is now in heaven discussing next years football season with God-maybe even placing a small bet on the winners.
