My eldest brother's birthday is actually tomorrow. But we celebrated it today. And we had all my siblings together in one place (which is rare).
At the party there were a lot of old friends of Dave (who is turning 60). And what I wasn't expecting were all the extemporaneous testimonials from his co-workers about what a loyal and strong friend they had both as a co-worker and when he was their Union representative. My family all thanked him as a protector of us younger siblings and, well I guess he's just a strong friend. He's one to keep.
Dave's touched a lot of people with music, with his leadership, with his heart. A loyal man with soul.

And that which should accompany old age,
As honor, love, obedience, troops of friends, 

Those are things he has.
