    He always had a big smile and loved life to the fullest. I didn’t get to see him that often but I enjoyed his company when we were around family. God just said its his time to enjoy his company and I bet he was welcomed with open arms and a smile .

    May these few words of sympathy help, at least in part, to ease the burden that you bear and the sadness felt in your heart at this difficult time. May the God of tender mercies and hope sustain the family during your time of need. 1 Corinthians 1:3: “May you have undeserved kindness and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.”
