The K of C has a pool to the left and a huge building to the right with grass going up the hill. At the top of the hill to the right they have the barbecue tent set up for this occasion; it was quite a spread. When we were climbing the hill with our things to join the family, I looked up and saw Rick and my heart stopped. He was walking across the hill from the tent toward the pool. He had his baseball cap on. I could see his beard, glasses; it was him. My mind was playing tricks on my head It was his brother, Paul, who looked so much like Rick.
It reminded me of that song, “I’ve Got That Joy, Joy, Joy down in my heart.” The verse that includes, “I’ve got that peace that passes understanding, down in my heart, down in my heart, down in my heart I’ve got that peace that passes understanding down in my heart and I want to give it all to you.” I wanted to take his peace but it was going to be a long time for me to reach it.
