He touched so many hearts. Lifted so many spirits. Created strong individuals. Without him our hearts would be lost. It was an honor to have this man as my father. I'm so grateful to have known what a pure human heart was.

Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss.  It breaks our hearts when death separates us from our loved ones. The God of all comfort is close to the brokenhearted and He has great compassion for those who are experiencing deep pain caused by grief (Psalms 34:18). May you find comfort in His grand promise to bring an end to tears and death (Isaiah 25:8). It is my hope that these thoughts Will help to ease your sorrow in the days ahead as you cherish your most treasured memories.
