What a wonderful person to have met in my life. Such a fun friendly happy and loving man. He always made me feel like it was the happiest moment of his day to see me. Saw him only once a year the last few years but still he made you feel special. That’s because he was special. I am sorry for this loss in your life but he will remain in your heart forever. He will in mine. Love you all of you. Family you are all blessed that he was yours. Peace.
