    The world has truly lost a beacon of life and love. No matter what was going on, you would listen and support that person who needed you. I will always remember when asked "How are you today?" The response was always "It is well." I will strive to live by that and you showed me the way. I am so blessed to have had met you and call you my brother in Christ.

    What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch. We may not understand why he left this earth so soon, or why he left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that he died, but that he lived. And that his life gave you memories too beautiful to forget. I Love you and I pray that in the midst of your sorrow you find comfort in all the joyful memories shared.
