Deborah sees Denver through God's eyes for the man he could be and Ron can only see him as he is. At Deborah insistence, Ron makes friends with Denver. Initially, Ron views the relationship as one sided (what he can do for Denver). As the friendship progresses Ron finds that Denver (an uneducated, homeless man) has far more to offer and it is he who benefits more from the friendship . It shows that those society views as the least of us, God will use to make a huge difference in our lives. The story will make you laugh and cry, but mostly it will inspire you.

Tell us a little about yourself. I have been an art dealer most of my life and in the book, I told more about me than most folks will ever want to know!
What was your motivation behind this project? I was motivated to tell a great love story and honor my wonderful, faithful wife, Deborah, and the man of her dream, Denver!
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? That free food and government funds will keep people alive, but It takes love to make a change in their lives..Also, that homeless person you have been passing by for years might be your guardian angel and no matter what he or she looks like, THEY ARE THE SAME KIND OF DIFFERENT as you.....
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? Denver is the one who first suggested we "write ourselves a book" because according to him there ain't nobody gonna believe this story!!!
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: the profits from this book are going to the Union Gospel Mission and other ministeries that care for homeless
