FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Denver Moore, a former Fort Worth homeless man who co-wrote the bestselling book "Same Kind of Different as Me" about his unlikely friendship with art dealer Ron Hall and their shared faith in God, has died. He was 75.

Moore, who had been in ill health, was found dead at his Dallas home. The Dallas County coroner's office said Moore died March 31. A memorial service is set for Thursday in Fort Worth.

Hall told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram (http://bit.ly/Hrr8MI ) that Moore's death leaves "a void in my life."

They met when Hall was serving meals to the homeless with his wife, who had a dream her husband would befriend a homeless man.

Following the book's release in 2006, Moore and Hall gave joint lectures across the nation.
