Today I officiated at the wedding of two close friends, Dave and Sam. (I was ordained on the internet years ago. It finally came in handy.) They live across the street from Shell Cottage, have been together for 12 years, and we are very, very fond of them and their three beautiful girls. Dave is nearing the end of his fight with esophageal cancer. They were married in his hospital room with their three daughters, a couple of witnesses, a few -- but not all -- family members.
I feel very honored to have been part of their wedding. I am so sad. They deserve another 40 years together. Please pray for Dave and Sam.
