Book Description

About the Book

Forgive us as we try to define a man with qualities so pure and precious. To justify pay him this ode, we pray we can. Painfully shy, he shares a smile, he almost seems fragile. But behind this charming manner lies a mind that's sharp, a will that applies. A life that's experienced Life itself, a well with wisdom collected. Weary wanders all can delve- The confused, the hurt, the neglected. Life's been lived as has been preached; you will find no dichotomy there. Small changes go a very long way, is a mantra he likes to share. And if our resolve dwindles and shakes on the path he has shown to us. Like a guiding light in all our lives, he's there to rescue us. If you don't know what you mean to us, this is our chance to share. The longing felt for Good on Earth, that space you fill, our lives you share.
