WHILE STILL DAY
John 9:4: “We must work the works of Him who sent Me as long as it is day; night is coming when no one can work.”
Seconds after my wife answered the phone, I knew bad news was coming. “Oh, no. I’m so sorry, Sally. We loved George. So sorry. Yes, he’s here. David!” She handed me the phone and whispered, “George died last night.”
George Villarreal was my ranch foreman on El Cazador Ranch. He and his dad Felipe made owning the ranch a joy. There was nothing the two of them couldn’t do and didn’t know about the ranch. After all, they lived and worked on it all their life and cared for it as if their own. They had the uncanny ability to know what I wanted done even BEFORE I told them. They were loyal, honest and truly good people…and very dear to me.
