Euripides once said that friends show their love in times of trouble, not in happiness. I definitely agree with this quote, it is shown in everyday situations. A true friend will always be there for you in times of trouble. This doesn't mean that they will always be there for you like you want them to, but a true friend will be there. Friends are always willing to accept you for who you are, and where you are in your life.

They are my source of confidence and assistance when I undergo troubled times, if I ever have a question they always have the answers.

It is with daily prayer that we work toward getting him counseling and keeping Modesto on the right track away from criminal activity.
