Daniel - rest in peace

It is most appropriate that my last post, from so many months ago, was the Detroit Auto Show. Daniel had wanted to go for several years and we finally went. One of his great passions in life was cars. He knew more about cars than anyone I know.

His mother told me that the one of the last sites he had visited on his laptop was Car And Driver. He got to come home for a surprise visit over Labor Day weekend. I was sitting with him on the couch at one point and he was looking at the Car And Driver site. He told me that he really liked that site because he got to read about the regular cars as well as the fancy ones.

The verse below was printed on the folder for his wake on Saturday night:

Isaiah 57

1 The righteous perish,
and no one ponders it in his heart;
devout men are taken away,
and no one understands
that the righteous are taken away
to be spared from evil.

2 Those who walk uprightly
enter into peace;
they find rest as they lie in death.
