I was going to post this in glider talk but I think since this is a Real Story of friendship and the love that can be shared with gliders, that it belongs here.

Nickolas came oop on Dec. 22, 2004. The same day as Peggy's Dasher. Peggy and I let the boys virtually grow up together and each glider became so special to each of us. Dasher feels like he is part mine too and I know Peggy feels that way about Nickolas. Our sharing of their growing and progress brought me so much closer to Nickolas then to any of my other gliders. He was such a special boy. So inquisitive and playful. Words can not express how it truly hurt when I lost him on Dec 31, 2005. A big part of my heart is gone now.

I know that Peggy hurts too over the loss of Nickolas, just as I would would it been Dasher. These two boys belong to both of us and has created a bond like no other. The love of these two gliders we share as well as the pain of loss for Nickolas.

Well, today, I was blessed by a show of friendship that I did not expect. I received a package in the mail containing a beautiful portrait done by Chris that I am still in tears over. My words of thanks to Peggy and Chris for this beautiful gift just can not express how much they have touched my heart. For those that think real friendships can not be formed via internet have never experienced the love I felt when I saw this portrait.

The love of gliders may have brought us together but friendships like this are built on more then one thing. If you are blessed to have this type of friendships, hang on to them as they are more precious then anything else.

Thank you again so much Peggy and Chris.

Judge not until you have walked in their shoes and lived their lives. What you see online is only part of the story.

I could have missed the pain
But I'd of had to miss the dance

The soul would have no rainbow if the eyes had no tears.

If you want to know what a person is like, watch how he treats others.

You'll never know what the outcome is if you don't step up and try.
