Last night I found out that my friend Richard Dakin’s son died. John Dakin has been battleing leukemia for a few years. For a while, his health was getting better and almost recovered, but then it declined again. John is a smart and bright young man with a lots of potential. It is very sad to see him go. I will be going back to Alabama, and I will make a trip to Birmingham to visit my friend Richard. It is times like this that really make you appreciate what you have.
