“Your dad was one of the best people I’ve known. There aren’t a lot of people like him—with his humility, generosity, friendliness, quiet strength, and un-pretended and unpretentious devotion to Jesus—though I wish there were. He was such a Christian, living out really well  and without fanfare what a disciple of Jesus is and does. You should be totally proud that he’s your dad. 

And as special as so many people thought and knew he was, he was constantly humble and treated others as special. Especially you and your mom—he loved you both so much. When you meet him, in some time to come, you will be so psyched, Audrey, that he’s your dad.”
