To my good friend, John Franklin Hay,
When the time comes I want you to be the key note speaker at my funeral. Yes, you. Please. I think you know me well enough to know that I would not want it to be “the usual.” I would want it to be not so much about me, but about the Gospel. Not the usual “gospel” that repels people – but the real, transparent Gospel. Not the kind that society in general tends to look at as judgmental and mean, but the one that “draws all men & women.” You know the one. The one that is so easy, that it’s hard. I want everyone that may be in attendance to feel the love. I want it palpable. Got it? Good.
To those who may think I’m a bit melodramatic about a simple cardiac ablation… oh well. Really, we should all do this asap as all our days are numbered.
If you pray, remember me the morning of September 21. I’ll be at Fairfax Hospital Cardiac Center. If you don’t pray, let me know and I’ll pray for you. Love to all.
Ciao for now~
