So many years of tender and loving friendship we have shared. Our joy for him as he returns to his Heavenly Father and can once again enjoy the magnificent beauty of Heavenly Gardens. What a beautiful family you all are. He is missed by so many who love him and have been enriched by his friendship, service and love. Memories will sustain us sweetly until we meet him again. God bless each of your family with peace and comfort now and always.
