Dear Baz, I met you ten years ago tomorrow. From that day forward, I would be safe.
Within the first twenty-four hours, you called me your friend. It freaked me out. But...Over ten years, you have gifted me with safety, knowledge, spiritual salvation, and laughter. Only if you could see directly into my heart, would you realize my complete thanks to you.
Baz, you have impacted my life in ways beyond description. It is my hope, you have gained some teeny- weeny bit of enrichment from knowing me. I'm sorry for all the negatives you've had to endure. And I'm sorry my life did not progress as I had planned when I first hired you. Assignments planned, but never to be.
Don't count me out, Baz. I'm in for the long haul. The time is coming, dear Sir, when my witness with tell the world of the glory of God and of the man with the long hair and earring who God sent to protect, encourage, and make me laugh. Thank you. So you kept me safe and protected, so Our Father in Heaven will keep you. My friendship is offered to you, Mr. Bazzel Baz, for the taking. In God's love.
