This is a lovely personal glimpse into the life of one proud to serve others in His name. I hope he is real, and that there are more like him. Thanks for the peek into his life.

I liked your title and it fit the story nicely. Enjoyed the story, especially the compassion it portrayed. You're right - Jesus would have loved to hang out with those outcasts.
Yes, I wish more policemen would have this kind of compassion. This story is well-told. The only thing I was bothered by was that the wife & son might be getting the short end of the stick.

This story felt so real. This is one great man. It takes someone wonderful to love people who are making wrong decisions.

I think Jesus placed His hands and feet in the wife's "uniform" as well; she exhibits a lot of grace serving and loving her husband so he can serve and love others. That came out unexpectedly but gently in the story. Very touching and well-written.

Great character!

I didn't understand his longing to be close to his family "again"--he seemed very close to them. And I felt that this story lacked conflict, an essential element in a short story.

Sweet little fellow, and the note was a lump-in-the-throat moment.
