I guess I've always loved smart asses and Joey Bishop was one of my favorite smart asses. He died yesterday. He was a member of the famous Rat Pack.
Last night I got word that a young man, I knew as a teenager died. He was 34 years old. I knew him from church when I was working with the youth and I participated in his Eagle Scout ceremony. I know nothing of the circumstances of his death. I love his Father and Stepmother and I grieve for them.
