In my mind, Ned and I had similarities. We were/are very outspoken and sometimes, perhaps, too much so. We'd get ourselves into hot water but would do it again in a minute. When you have a fire inside, and you speak the truth, you just have to do it. I remember you saying to me one time after some homeschool drama, "No good deed goes unpunished". Yup. The world is sure a crazy place, but it's also a beautiful place. It's all about us, the people, and the love that makes the world go around. The rest is Silly Putty.
