Last night I led the funeral of a 61 year old friend who died of pancreatic cancer. Just eight weeks ago he was diagnosed. No warning. There are no screening tests for this kind of illness.

Jerry, in his 61 years, lived the life that many people will live if they hang on till 90. He rode horses, raced motorcycles, played a lot of golf . . . but most importantly, he loved God and he loved his family.

Life is fragile. Live it now.
