To the family: We are so sorry for your loss. Our hearts are broken,our words are few. We serve an awesome God and our prayers for strength and peace are plentiful. He was a wonderful person and I am grateful to have known him and have him in our lives. He and Maw Maw treated us like we were one of their own, that's something I'll never forget. We love you all!
