It's so rare to read about men and their close friendships. This is so funny and tender. Good job! I love true blue friendships. There is nothing like them!
I truly enjoyed Frank's walk down memory lane with Ed--tender moments exposed gave me warm and fuzzies for these guys. Great job.
You captured the closeness of these two friends very well. I enjoyed reading this knowing it was a true story. Thanks for sharing.
A real portrait of friendship.
Well done.
Mari- you had me teary BEFORE I even read this (from your explanation). This was a really terrific story, well told, and kept me hooked in. My condolences on the gentleman from your church.
This peice has it all. It has a great character. It is funny and heart wrenching at the same time. I'll admit that I laughed at the part about him getting nailed in the privates, and the ending lines killed me. Then I read the other comments that say this is a true story, and it made it that much more impactful.

Thanks for sharing, Mari. This was great.
