on 7 August, the city of Missoula, MT lost one of its brightest lights and biggest hearts, a gifted writer and pianist, humorist and compassionist, advocates and paracletes, Jamie Kelly.
personally, i lost one of the closest friends i've ever had.
and in the midst of the grief and sadness, loss and love, i was given the honour and privilege of co-officating Jamie's memorial service on 15 August at my former church, First Presbyterian Church of Missoula.
Make It Missoula has very graciously posted my memorial reflection for my friend, titled in honour of the regular column he wrote for the Missoulian newspaper for many years, 'Fatuous Twaddle'.

'Fatuous Twaddle' for a Phenomenal Friend
i know Jamie's family would truly appreciate any healing thoughts, prayers and well-wishes you could offer in the ways you may feel led.
peace to you,
