Life is but a journey, our story to the world of how we love, laughed, cried, cared for others. So much life lived in all his years here on earth. So many memories for you all to share and remember his life journey. Gone but never forgotten. He will live on in your memories and in the stories you tell others about him and how he touched your lives. Prayers to all the family and friends for peace that passes all understanding. May Gods love comfort you all.
