April 5, 2018
Three quarters of my life are filled with memories of this dear and precious friend. As a pastor and a friend, he was always there for me and my family. When we were hurting, he was there, comforting and praying. He was a part of our celebrations and our grief, whether officiating the service or offering a prayer. And, the day he called me at work to tell me he had just left the home of my 83 year old father after leading him to the Lord, will ever be a joyous memory.
I will miss his jokes, his laughter, and his contagious smile. He never met a stranger and he loved life. More importantly, he loved God above everything and he was a faithful servant. He will be missed by so many.
To Mary and all of the family, I love you, miss you and pray for you. May God wrap His arms of comfort around you and give you peace. May he carry you when you feel you do not have the strength to go on.
Looking forward to that glad reunion day in heaven!
