Miss you brother. It was always beautiful to see the light in your eyes shine brightly every time you spoke of your loving family. It was wonderful to see the gratitude within you for the blessing of having them in your life. Listening to you speak of your family with pride and joy, always warmed my heart as it reminded me of just how fortunate I was to have my family as well. It was an honor to have known you and it was an honor to have met those that you treasured in life. You have been called by the Lord and you continue to serve God’s purpose. We miss you dearly. Until we meet again.
