    Praying for the entire family and friends. Such a wonderful person has left this life and moved to a much sweeter place. There he will be reunited with many family and friends that are awaiting his arrival. His wife, Anna will always be in my heart and prayers for the coming days and months. She has been by his side, even when she was hardly able to take care of herself. She did everything possible to make sure her husband was taken care of. We were neighbors for many years and they were true friends and Godly people. I know the loss of this man will be truly missed by many. I know God is able to take away all the pain and sadness death brings. But rest in the promises of God that he is with his maker in his home on high. Love from your friends.
