He Stopped By

He stopped by to fix the
washer and stayed to tell

about the tragic death of
his beautiful, twenty-four-

year-old daughter one year
ago in a head-on collision

with a drunk driver. He’s
a part-time pastor sharing

with a retired pastor and
they cried and hugged and

found solace in the brief,
eternal moments of blessed

silence. They just held
each other.
