Dearest Dad, I know you are in heaven and I am sure to see you again. Blessed Assurance. You have left a
Wonderful legacy. My prayer is that we all will be reunited to walk on streets of gold with you! Your ears must be burning with all the kind words that family and friends have expressed about how kind you were to everyone you met. May we all learn from you that a kind word to someone can mean so much. You will
continue to be a blessing to all who knew you.
