    Dear Libbie,

    Sorry it’s been so long since I’ve written. You and Al and I were students togeher in basic Hebrew back in the Fall of 1979, with Terry Eves as our TA. I’m not sure you would remember me since our paths have diverged so much since then. That was before either of us had any kids, and you and Al came to our house for dinner right about the time my wife (Sheri) learned she was pegnant with our first. You and Al were intrepid enough to come all the way down to South Philly for dinner. Do you remember that?

    I’ve had to follow Al’s career from a distance since I never tried to remain close to Westminster since we graduated. I spent a few years pastoring an inner-city church in Fall River, Massachusetts and then I returned to student work (InterVarsity and other things) and have lived in Lincoln, Nebraska since 1987. I’ve glad to see you and Al have four kids, as do we.

    It has been quite a blessing to read your words of praise in the blog over the last few weeks. May the Lord continue giving you the profound trust and joy in Him you have known. I trust the memoral service will prove to be a great comfort to many saints and a great witness to many sinners. We rejoice with you in your joys and we will grieve with you when the grief overwhelms.

    Thank you for the many words of testimony you and Al have written, and thank the Lord for His work in Al’s and your life!

    Mark Harrington
