Not sure what to say?

I had the great chance to meet him at several occasions. My favorite memory is when he had a Christmas celebration for all the contractors that he worked with. I was very inspired how he had his family including himself serving all of us, it really showed his humbleness, appreciaton and love for people. We were the last to leave he made coffee we sat with his wife and young daughter and he talked about how blessed he was. I will always cherish that moment. I am very saddened to read of...
