T-18 : Roy Braver

Today I found out that my friend, Roy, passed away overnight.  When I found out, I was shocked and saddened.  I cried.  He'd contracted cancer a few months back.  He's about the same age as me.  I never imagined that the cancer would be something he couldn't nor wouldn't conquer.  Anyway, as part of my method of coping, here are a few of my remembrances of my Brave Buddy.

  • His southern twang
  • His goatee
  • His Atlanta Braves fanaticism
  • His zeal for the Gospel of Jesus Christ
  • His love for his wife, adopted son (who didn't seem adopted), and blood daughter (who wasn't supposed to be possible)
Roy was braver than me.  I'll miss you, buddy.
