To the Family, my thoughts and prayers are with you. I think so many people have gotten into to habit of saying, their in a better place. When you lose a love one that's not what you want to here. The better place should have been with his wife and son's. He has gone to be with his Father and one day, you will see him again... God bless you!!!!!
