A celebration of life will be held in his honor on August 24 at the Dignity Mortuary on 684 S Mollison in El cajon, CA 92020. The service will be officiated by
It broke our hearts to lose you, But you did not go alone.
A part of us went with you, the day God took you home. If tears could build a stairway, And heartaches make a lane,
we’d walk our way to heaven, and bring you back again. In life we love you dearly,
And in death we love you still,
in our hearts you hold a place no one could ever fill.
