From our family to yours, deepest sympathy!! I remember quite a few special moments with him but every time you saw this man out and about he always had a smile and a hello for you. He will definitely be missed, not only by your family but the people had came in contact with everyday. May God grant you the comfort you need and the joy that only comes with knowing that there will be a reunion again someday in heaven because of his commitment to Jesus Christ. That in itself should give you strength and comfort for the days ahead. Thinking of you.
