My condolences to the children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and dear close friends. Sometimes there are no words to convey sorrow to those who have lost someone near and dear to our hearts. Treasure your memories and, be assured that the God of Comfort has him tucked away in his memory. (2 Cor. 1:3, 4) Sincerely, Ali
