Not sure what to say?

He was such a good. I remember his funny jokes and good attitude may he Rest In Peace.

Always found him to be a kind, gentle and compassionate man of few words but a spirit of love and affection followed him everywhere he went.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
