Among my family, friends, and acquaintances are many special people. My point in telling their stories is to show how weird, interesting, and funny they are in my eyes.
My view is usually rosy, but that doesn't mean their lives have been free from pain, disappointment, embarrassment, regret, or any of the other trials we all face. My perspective is motivated by the joy and love these people have given me, as well as the value and strength in their stories. These are the things I want to remember about these amazing people and the things I want them to remember about themselves.
