    So sorry, Tim, for the loss of your friend Bob. Amen that his presence Blessed you and your Church. Just as you all Blessed him by loving him as God does. He was lucky to have you all. God Bless you and your Church (and Jim & Jennifer) for living out God’s Love in your corner of the world. Praying that God will Bless you all mightily for offering those ‘cups of water’ in His Name, and expand your ministry. Such a beautiful lesson for all us saints. Holding you close in heart and prayer. ~Brenda

    Tim, your friend Bob has already been made whole. And thanks to this graceful essay, Bob’s helping make the rest of us whole as well. My condolences on the loss of your friend.

    Beautiful! I love what you said about God breathing us into God’s lungs and shapes us, then breathes us back out again to live in the world, infused with God’s presence.

    I wish I’d know Bob, but I know others like him. They transform my life.

    What a nice eulogy. I believe this speaks very well for you Tim. Many people will not take the time to
    even acknowledge they know a homeless person.
