What an amazing, full life he lived, and a beautiful legacy of family he leaves behind. I am so sorry for your loss. I wish I could be there to celebrate his life with you. I am praying for your comfort in this extraordinarily sad time.

John 10:27-29 - [Jesus said:] "My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father's hand."
