A great man of God who loved everyone. He loved “short” phone conversations but was always calling to check on those he loved. He is rejoicing in heaven with his savior and those who have gone ahead and who have been waiting for him. REJOICE for him as you also grieve for his loved ones still awaiting that glorious day
