Another night to Remember my Brother

Last night I had the chance to attend The UGA Campus-wide Candle Memorial Ceremony at the Chapel on
North Campus for students and faculty that have passed away
during the past year.  It was a very moving ceremony.  They  read each name, followed by the toll of a bell and lighting of a candle. 
It was weird being with all of Michael's close friends and not having Mikey around.  Its now almost been 5 months and at times it doesn't seem real. 
For me it was great to be able to hang out with all of his friends.  Some I have know for twenty plus years, some a few years and others just a couple of months.  To hear their stories and to hear how Michael impacted their lives is priceless.  I hope and pray that don't let this slip by and that see how Michael enjoyed life, loved everyone, and tried his hardest to live for God.

"But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness."

1 Timothy 6:11
