And You Know You Should Be Glad
A True Story of Lifelong FriendshipPaperback - 2007
A highly personal true story of memory and the power of friendship from journalist Bob Greene. Growing up in Bexley, Ohio, population 13,000, Bob and his four best friends--Allen, Chuck, Dan, and Jack--were inseparable. Of the four, Jack was Bob's very best friend, a bond forged from the moment they met on the first day of kindergarten. They grew up together, got in trouble together, learned about life together--and were ultimately separated by time and distance, as all adults are. But through the years Bob and Jack stayed close, holding on to the friendship that had formed years before. Then, the fateful call came: Jack was dying. And in this hour of need, as the closest of friends will do, Bob, Allen, Chuck, and Dan put aside the demands of their own lives, came together, and saw Jack through to the end of his journey.--From publisher description.
