This blog is my response to the death of a friend, Daniel Champion. His blog gave his daily comments on life as a husband, student, pastor and human being with cancer. Dan died this summer. I received news of his death from the phone call of a friend and Dan's wife via the blog. I flew to Pittsburg, met some friends and drove to Youngstown for the funeral. It was a painful and beautiful funeral. Painful and Beautiful to speak and give witness to the man who touched so many.
The comments you read will never touch the depth and quality of Dan's. But they are here as a memorial to one of the funniest, most creative and sweetest souls I have known. Peace be with you brother.
Dan's blog continues; his wife now gives the view of life as a widow.
