I've been close to a family I met many years ago having served in the same congregation with all of them at one time or another. I also worked closely with the oldest daughter for many years. The patriarch of this family was precious to so many of us. He has been very sick for awhile now but his loving family have been taking very good care of him - especially his devoted wife of so many years. They used to love dancing with each other. He told his children about how beautiful she was when he first saw her and you just knew they shared a deep love and respect for each other.
