Gayle and I are getting ready to travel south to South Carolina in a couple of days. We will be spending several days with our dear friends David and Renee Dugger. I owe them a house blessing and it has been several months since we saw them at their son Aaron’s wedding. Many of you will also remember them as the parents of Adam Dugger, also a dear friend who lost a battle with cancer last year. Many of you prayed for his healing and he was, just not the way we had hoped. I am humbled often as I think of his love and trust for me in the years we knew one another. Heaven is brighter today and we look with anticipation to warm hugs and wonderful days with our friends here on earth but more so in eternity. It is sooner than when we first believed friends!!!
