What a blessing it was to be a part of the last few days of this great mans life. I was honored to have met him and was moved by the love and devotion I felt from his family. I know this must be such an incredible loss losing the patriarch of your family. I can see his impact from what he has done for our city. I pray that your beautiful memories bring you some vestiage of comfort in the tough days ahead.
Thank you for allowing me to be a small part of his journey.
