    Revelation 21:4: "And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away."

    He will be missed. Always happy and had chocolate to share. Was a lucky man to have a wife that he loved . Was so happy when they got a new home . Missed dearly at work.

    I will never forget the times when you helped me out of a fix! Hanging curtains and during my big move to follow you guys to North Carolina. My movers refused to bring the van to my apartment and you and Kathy jumped up and spent hours helping me get unpacked. I don't know what I'd have done without you. Rest my friend.
