Your loved one's obituary says that he was a simple man, and in today's world that is one of the nicest compliments a person can receive. Our lives have become too complex, too busy, and filled with people who try to do too much. A simple man who knows and appreciates the value of the real things in life is a blessed man. We know you will miss the physical parting with him, but your treasured memories of him will lessen the pain. Your family is in our prayers during this very sad time.
