I wanted to express my condolences to you and your family. By your beautiful words, he was clearly one of special mightiness as mentioned at Psalms 90:10, not just because of his character, but also because of his character. Yet still you and all who love him are left grieving his loss. God promises to bring him back as found at John 5:28, 29 and Revelation 21:4. It is my sincere hope that those few scriptures give you a measure of comfort during this difficult time.

To my dad, who was the light of our family and was loved so much. Thank you for all the memories you leave to us, all the fun times as the biggest kid at home when we were young, your love of life and most of all for being you. Rest in peace until we are together again. Your loving daughter, Teasha
