The World Loses Another Hero

Without this man, I have no idea what kind of person I would be today. What I do know is that I would not be anywhere near as successful in life, anywhere near as loving or accepting of love, or anywhere near as happy. -Andru Edwards

I was moved this morning when I heard (through Bryan) of the passing of Andru Edwards’ father, George Budabin, for I know what it is like to lose someone who changed my life so dramatically just by loving me – my step-father, Gordy, married my mom the summer before I turned nine, and he loved me like his own daughter. His love grounded me during a time when I was confused and angry about who I could trust.

Gordy died from cancer three years ago this January.

Life seems unfair at times, especially when I see good, kind-hearted, and sacrificial people struggle and pass on. I pray for Andru and his family, for the peace of God during this difficult time.
