Not sure what to say?

God bless and keep all his descendants for ever. What a positive example in life he was showing love is more powerful than hate.

My condolences to his family and friends. He was a resilient man who continued to make the most of his life despite the atrocities he had to face. What an excellent memory to have of him, But one day our creator will rectify all of the turmoil we have had to deal with it and we will live the way he intended for us to live. We can all look forward to that.

Praying for the entire family. May he rest in peace, and may he enjoy his new home in heaven!

May his soul be at peace and enjoy the freedom from earthly life in the bliss of Spirit.
