I would like to say a big "Thank you!" to Rudy. For someone he has never met, he has truly gone above and beyond to help me.

Although he knows me only through the forum, emails and the occasional phone conversation, he treats me like someone he has known for years. I consider him a friend.

I hope that I will be able, if only in some small way, to repay him for his kindness.

James...I don't consider myself an overtly religious man. I do have faith that there is a God and have never discredited anything related to the creation of this planet by an almighty entity. However, the more time I spend with Rudy it becomes hard to ignore that there are people on this Earth who have encompassed the core of what having faith in God truly means.

Rudy's compassion for the people he meets is as genuine as it gets. Regardless of who you might be, from a total stranger to a lifetime friend, Rudy treats everyone with dignity and respect....and most importantly love.

Unlike some folks who believe that Christianity should be forced upon the masses who have not accepted Christ as their savior, Rudy allows for an open mind and refrains from the bible thumping approach that probably scares more people away from finding their place with God than it does to encourage it.

To put it simply, Rudy lives his life for others. I hope that someday you get the chance to meet and talk with Rudy in person James. He radiates his faith in such a way that even if he never told people he was a Christian, his actions would make it clear that he his fulfilling his purpose in serving God.

I cant speak for Rudy, but I believe I know him well enough to say that he would tell you the best way to repay him for his kindness would be to pay it forward to someone who you think could use it...

Man, fellas. Thank you for the very kind and encouraging words. I'm actually quite overwhelmed by them.
I'm in a position where I feel like I'm often reminded of what I'm not doing well. 

Words have the power to build up or tear down. It means a lot to me that you both would take time to build me up with these life affirming words. What a gift!

Thanks again!

Your friend,

Rudy
