Only the Good Die Young  Sep 11, 2007
I was looking forward to reading this book, and I read it in one sitting.

I had met and spoken with Bishop Alphonse Gallegos once, in 1986 or 1987, I believe. It was at a St. Patrick's Day fundraiser. I was a volunteer bartender, and so I was in a position to observe him interacting with everyone else. Previously, I had never heard of him.. Before the dinner started, however, he came up to me and introduced himself. I believe he told me to just call him Al. Later, someone mentioned that he was the assistant Bishop for Hispanic affairs in Los Angeles. He was a warm, very outgoing, "people" person and not the least bit stiff, aloof or patronizing. You would never know he was a Bishop! My own personal conversation with him lasted probably less than sixty seconds. And yet for those few seconds, I felt profoundly valued as a person. I have never forgotten that. The picture of him in this book, verified by my own personal encounter, shows a man fully engaged with life and wholly dedicated to following Christ.

The accident that cost him his life was a huge loss for the church in America. There is a line in a Billy Joel song that goes, "Only the good die young." I have known other good people who died too young, and I have only been able to reconcile it in my mind by concluding that God likes to take the good people sooner rather than later.
