Ramblings of a Best Man

A few weeks ago I had the honor of being John’s best man. I MC’d the reception and gave The Speech. But I didn’t get to say everything I wanted to say. So here are some things I may or may not have said in my speech:

  • I’ve known John Grogg since my sophomore year of high school…which makes over a decade
  • John has been my most loyal friend. When I’ve been rude, mean or distant…John didn’t care, he forgave and he moved on
  • We’ve had more spiritual conversations than I can count
  • We have hung out together in High School, Yosemite, Malibu (socal in general), New York, Florida, Germany and France
  • We’ve prayed together
  • We’ve been roommates
  • We’ve disagreed
  • We’ve both been involved in these groups: Gamma Gkkkkkt, ASP, and The Difference
  • We’ve played countless hours of Counter-Strike together…ah, college life
  • We’ve praised God together
  • We’ve shared scripture with one another
  • We’ve shot at each other
  • We’ve even cried

The point is, we’ve shared a lot of life and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for John. You are a true friend. As Sean Connery says in the movie First Knight, “Brother to Brother, Yours in LIfe and Death.”

  1. Thanks man, your “ramblings” at the reception meant a lot to me, as does this.

    Though, over a decade?!? Jeesh, we’re getting old.
