Until We Meet Again Friend...

This is a personal tribute to my friend Don Bowen to keep his smiling face etched in my memory forever.

Don, you have always been a great friend through the years. I loved discussing all things Directory Services with you during your tenure at Sun. I loved even more swapping spiritual encouragements during good times and hard times. These last couple of years though, Don raised the bar on encouragement not only to me but to everyone that followed his pilgrimage through his blog. Even my mom, a cancer survivor herself has followed your blog and been encouraged immensely by it.

To Eileen and the girls, my prayers continue on for God's comfort and provision for you in the days and years ahead.

2 Corinthians 5 reminds us that to be away from the body is to be present with the Lord. Many have been praying for a big miracle for Don these last couple of years. On October 31st of 2009, Don finally got the biggest miracle of all to be embraced by the loving arms of his Lord. I look forward to seeing you again one day my friend. Until then, blessings to you and yours!

Your friend and brother in Christ!
