My Friend Richard Ludzack Remembered
THE ONLY CHOICE THAT MATTERS 10/12/2003
Dick was a great guy, and though we have not talked all that often in the
last few years.. I consider him a
true friend. He was a good man who loved God and his family. Dick was one of
the guys that as a youth I sat
with in the Back Pew of the church. He was also one of us guys that could not
sing. NONE OF US COULD.
We called it the SIN OF OUR PARENTS. You know, when the people asked Jesus why
a certain man was
blind.. was it because of his own sin or the sin of his parents?? Well there
was a core group of guys in our church,
So back to the serious sobering point of these days. Dick was a good man, a good family man, and faithful to God. Though he will be missed.. Dick’s life was a success. Never to trivialize the loss to his family, and friends, but Dick lived his life right.. he loved the Lord, and is in Heaven now. So as I often like to reflect.. In this LIFE which is only a DROP IN THE BUCKET OF ETERNITY… Dick who lived only to be 46 (same age as me) was faithful with the time he had on Earth. None of us know how long we have here in this world that is a blend of joy and pain. Where there is so much good, and so much tragedy.. so in the end it ETERNALLY makes a difference the choices you make in life. Dick chose wisely. I pray we are faithful in making the same decision.
May the Lord protect each of you.. may he give us all the perspective that
is only his.. may his comfort
and love be felt by us all, and may we all know Jesus.
