I have a photo album, and on the inside cover of that album I wrote:
“There is a friend who sticks closer than a brother (Proverbs 18:24)…I have four of them.”
And throughout the album are dozens and dozens (we’ve probably taken hundreds) of pictures just like this one:
That there will never be another photo of us five added to this album…breaks my heart!
21 years of the five of us. 21 years equals thousands of memories.
Today Scotty thought of a hand on his knee and remembered Chris, Greg thought of his bunny rabbit and remembered Chris, Aaron thought of a goat and remembered Chris, and I thought of bathtub cleaner and remembered Chris.
Chris made all these things funny and lasting memories. Who else can do that?
21 years equals thousands of memories…and there won’t be any more made with ALL The Ohio Boys…and my heart just can’t handle that yet.
Yesterday one of The Boys was tragically lost and thousands of memories that will one day bring me comfort, at this moment just leave me reeling.
There is a friend who sticks closer than a brother…I lost one…
