The Death Of A Friend

Last night I attended calling hours for a long-time friend who unexpectedly passed last Sunday. His name was Ken Bird. I first met Ken through friends at a 12 step meeting and quickly learned that he was very active in that fellowship. I aspired to be the kind of guy he was and build a solid foundation of long term recovery and success in life through effort. Ken was the kind of person that inspired that in you.

Over the years we attended many service events together (and I know he went to far more than I did). I always admired the passion he maintained for the fellowship and the amount of time and other resources he devoted to it. He shall be greatly missed and not easily replaced. He left a legacy of good work and caring that is always the most valuable treasure one could inherit. God bless you on your journey to His presence, my friend. Fair winds.
