He was truly a man of God, exemplified by the way he took care of his family, and the relationship he had with his wife. He always carries a smile that was contagious. He executes all the qualities of the Word Of God. He has left his footprints on the sands of time. He is absent, now present with The Lord, dancing on the streets of glory. RIP. My thoughts and prayers are with the families.
