I read with sadness that today Mattie Stepanek, author of several books of poetry and Muscular Dystrophy advocate, died today at the age of 13. I had heard of him many years ago, but a while back I was visiting a friend who had one of his books so I read through it. Mattie had incredible depth and insight for such a young age. Despite all the turmoil of his young life, whenever I saw him interviewed on TV he always seemed to have such a peace and warmth about him. "The earth is a little poorer tonight, but heaven is richer." (taken from a eulogy written by Max Lucado for Allen Dutton Sr.)
