Wanted to tell you that I shared your son’s story to my 15 year old daughter and her friends this weekend. She is s sweet girl who is deeply spiritual. We went to lunch Saturday and I wanted to share with her how his life, and legacy had shared God’s word to so many people even today, six years after his passing, even here in Memphis, as we talk of a boy who wrote a scripture in all of his baseball caps. I shared the link to his Memorial Tournament and, of course, my daughter has put in her request for some bracelets from the website, which I will do this week. I also spoke to my Sunday school class (2nd Grade Girls) about his story. I just want you to know that I really do believe that God, however hard to understand, has a reason for everything. Your son’s story, his goodness, his faith and devotion is a story I’m sure has been told to thousands and thousands of people over the years through your baseball tournament and all the others his life has touched. And how amazing that his story reaches out across the miles so I can share it now.
Anyway, I get teary thinking about how a young man with a sharpie and a baseball cap continues to spread God’s Word, and how so many in the world will fall so short in our long lives of what he did in his small gestures of faith…
I’ll send you proofs sometime tomorrow.
