I've never met these two men. The one on the right is the mighty blogger who inspired my own blogging adventures, beFrank. I hope one day to meet the man behind the beFrank blog.
Bryan has become a part of the family. I check his blog daily to see what he and his lovely wife Dellis and their children have been up to. I leave the occasional (well, more than occasional) comment, and Bryan is always faithful to comment back. He is a brother in Christ, and he feels like a brother in fact as well.
The man on the left is Bryan's big brother Marcel. Marcel passed away on Sunday, January 14, 2007 at the age of 46.
I was getting ready for my first day of teaching back at Vanguard when I popped by beFrank's blog to see what he had been up to. I burst into tears when I read what had happened. I am so very sorry for his loss. It is a loss for all of those who surf by his inspired blog.
I didn't even know what a blog was a year ago. Now, thanks to Bryan generously sharing snapshots of his family, my life has been greatly enriched. I have laughed with them. I have rejoiced with them. Now I weep with them.
