We've lost a friend - Bill Faith

I am deeply saddened to hear that Bill Faith has passed away. Bill was a friend - he supported my initial blog efforts, and linked to this blog as well. More importantly, he faithfully sent emails to me during my husband's deployment to check on him, and check on me. He would talk horse with me. He loved his family, and oh how he loved those grandbabies. His spirit was one to emulate, as even when he didn't feel well, he had something positive to say.

Bill was a true hero, a defender of our country and it's ideals. Bill served in the Air Force, and was a Viet Nam vet. I was just thinking I hadn't sent a message to him in awhile, and should really send an email. I didn't get around to it and I will never have a chance again.

I feel like the wind has been knocked out of me.
