Thank you all so much for your love and memories. It means so much to his family. Dad truly was a "brick", solid in what he undertook. He set his heart to encourage others, treating others the way he would want to be treated. I believe the deep ability he possessed to encourage was a gift from his God, as was his care in teaching. These two gifts strengthened each other, so too speak, and came out as blessings for those he served.
