To have had such a great opportunity of spending his life watching his family grow in love and unity. Your photos really capture what the scripture at John 5:28,29 express as the joy of receiving our love ones back from death. How we all will enjoy living forever here on Earth. (Psalms 37:9-11) My sincere condolences to you all.
