We will miss Basil as we remember him to be a gentle and kind soul. Basil was always a hard worker and his drive to keep his family together along with his wonderful wife was his priority.
Our deepest condolences to your family and your loved ones. We are truly sorry for your loss. However, memory is a gift from God, that death can not destroy. He will always be in our thoughts and prayers. The word of God tells us, "To be absent from the body is to be present with Christ". We thank God that Basil is out of his misery and he is home with his heavenly Father.
God Bless you family Love Pastors Norman and Margherita Jordan
