The Truest Grit
"The Truest Grit"
This photo is dedicated to someone I used to know, someone I would call an old friend even though the last time I actually talked to him was probably in high school. His name was Craig Alguire and if ever there was a human who had “True Grit” it was Craig. I first remember him when he was eight or nine years old and we were in the YMCA swim team together. He was a few years younger but he could swim faster than anyone in the pool. And even at that young age, Craig was a truly KIND and genuine human being.
And I don’t think he ever stopped being so kind, brilliant, humble, or inspiring.
In the 20+ years since I saw him last, I imagine he has touched more lives than he ever knew.
Craig died today.
My heart breaks for his loving family, and for all that loved him.
I join the many who will miss him.
