May 7, 2010 by Steve Woodruff I’m a happy man. I wake up with peace in my heart, and hope for the future. Most days, anyway! For many years – decades – I lived under a dark cloud. Depression was a constant companion, so woven into my experience that I did not even know how bad off I was.
|“||To my friend Trey Pennington, one of the worst things about Social Media is we can be surrounded by so many and still feel completely alone. I’m sorry brother, I could have and should have done more. I should have pushed harder about getting together. Forgive me. May you bask in the glory of your Savior and may you feel the love only He can give. I look forward to seeing you again one day.|
|Thank You Trey Pennington
Some shocking news this morning, hearing of the unexpected death of Trey Pennington. In March, Trey and Jay asked me to be on their radio show, Open for Business. It was a great conversation about the continued popularity of blogging and Trey truly gave me the spotlight throughout the show.
I am Trey’s brother and have been monitoring your posts throughout the day as I and the rest of his family have been dealing with today’s reality and planning for the days ahead.
On behalf of our family, I sincerely thank you for the deluge of love and support you have so generously offered, as well as your stories of how Trey was connected to your life and the impact he had on it. It is heartfelt and a source of warmth and comfort to us. Please continue to keep us in your thoughts and prayers. I will do the same for you as I know you have lost someone special, too.
