    He helped create so many wonderful memories for me, my sisters, Deb and Dawn. Right now, there is a gaping hole in our hearts and tears on our faces. But, I know he'll be with us forever in those memories. God Bless you!

    I am so sorry for your loss. Please know that you are never alone. You can find much comfort in the Holy Scriptures which assures us at Psalms 34:18 that God is near to those broken at heart and crushed in spirit. Please accept my deepest sympathies.
