Have you ever been touched deeply by someone you barely knew?
On May 1, 2013 a man named Wally Collins passed away. A few short years ago I sang at his wedding as he married one of the people I hold most dear, Mary McClean. They shared a brief, but beautiful love. It was moving to witness. Wally fought hard to stay on this earth to be with Mary and his family as long as possible. He defied the odds over and over right until the end.
I had known Wally for only 4 of his 89 years. Yet somehow he had touched my life deeply.
