Thanks everyone. He had a beautiful life. And for his funeral we all will be celebrating that life. He was married over 60 years and he built many homes over his 55 years of being a carpenter. He was on a roof at 81 years old nailing away when he finally decided that this is the last house he'll build. He's built hundreds of custom dream homes for families and churches in and around Coushatta and I couldn't be prouder of him. I'm also proud of the fact that I was able to help him on a few of them. He's a great God-fearing man that taught me how to remain calm in the worst of the storms. The absolute worst storm for me was when my brother and his grandson died at 19. My grandfather also lost his brother when he was a boy like me. So, he showed me how to stay strong. I'd have fallen apart without him and God. Such a beautiful man and always taught me to follow Jesus. I'm glad I finally listened before he passed.

Thanks for all your condolences. We love you all.

David
