I heard of Mr. Ulysses passing today and wanted to express my condolences on your loss of a life so we'll lived. I have such great memories of him growing up and how amazing he and your mom were for our family. He will be sorely missed I am sure by all who knew him. May God give you the peace of mind that he is resting and embraced forever by a love unimaginable in our lord Jesus Christ. One day you too will see him again.
