I was sad to see this. I always wondered how he was doing over the years.... as he used to deliver heating oil to my mother´s home for years ...throughout my childhood and as an adult. He was always very kind. Whenever he was called he would show up promptly to make sure we had fuel. My mother Nellie passed as well at 84 this year in May. They always had conversations about gardening and different things. He was like family. My condolences to his family. May the Holy Spirit bring y´all comfort during this difficult time.
