Bill Frey – A Gift

March 4, 2012

A friend is a gift
He was always glad to see me
No expectations
No plans for my improvement
Rejoicing in our friendship
 
With light in his eyes
Giving joy and acceptance
Generous and kind
 
Special history
So many loved him dearly
A giver not a taker
A wise man who knows
What matters most in this life
The value of a person
 
I watched him live it
First Bunny, his beloved
Melissa, his child
His friends he made feel special
Those who worked with him honored
 
Compassionate and faithful
A true man who sought the best
Loved to laugh and take pleasure
All in his presence
 
I have some regrets
I did not avail myself
Of more moments of his friendship
But one thing I know
We both shared a deep bonding
That is eternal and real
 
One promise he knew
Death would not be the winner
Love was much greater
Defined by the Christ who died
Who rose victoriously
 
He was not afraid
Bunny was there to comfort
Missy held him close
A sacred moment for them
As in peace he breathed his last
 
This tender moment for them
Will always be in my mind
Bunny on his chest whispered
“I love you and it’s O.K.
You can let go and go home”
 
February twenty ninth
His dad, Carl, died on that day
He knew that this was the day
He was not afraid
We all hated this process
The angels were all around
 
Bill was covered with God’s love
Surrounded by his dear friends
Held close by his beloved
Angels attending

The Psalms I was meditating on as I wrote these thoughts were: Psalm 4; 34; 91; 103; 119:50 and John 11.
