    I could never thank you enough for all you have ever done for me and Kohen! Words can not explain the loss I feel but knowing you are in heaven walking again comforts me in so many ways! You were a wonderful father and I love you so much. I can't wait to see you again. I love you Daddy!

    Offering my deepest condolences to the family. Please take comfort in the bible's promise of a time when death will be no more. (Rev.21:3,4) May Jehovah God give you strength to endure this difficult time.
