Psalm 23
The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

    We were good friends when we were teenagers. Sorry I was not able to find you whenever I was back in Amarillo the last 3 or 4 years.
    I did not find out that you had passed until after your memorial service. I regret that I was not able to find you while you were still alive.
    I missed you my friend.
