Dois was very special to me. He became a de facto mentor to me when I was in-between churches. Upon my Dad passing in 2009, other than my Mom and brother, Dois was the first person that I called for prayer, advice, and support. In my 48 years as a Christian, I have never met anyone so energized for the Lord, so mature in his faith, and one having such a long range vision of exactly why he was here on earth. He knew exactly what God would have him accomplish during his remaining years. When I visited Dois and Shirley at the local Country Club in approximately 2006, he turned to me and asked me what I said to Shirley. Apparently, Shirley opened up and became, for a few seconds, completely lucid. He will be missed. I hope that I can model after him, to some measure, anyway, in structuring my remaining years, making them count for the Lord in furthering His kingdom.
