This comes from a dear friend and fellow member of the church:
...I am miles away in Alaska as you passed to the heavens above and was sadden by the passing of a dear friend. I can not be here to say goodby but you will remain in all of the hearts of everyone that has known you for the years we were blessed with you in our lives. I am returning to know that I have lost a dear friend but you will be forever in my heart and thoughts. May your journey to heaven be peaceful.
