His laughter and legacy will live on in us forever because he was such a wonderful, loving, and caring person. We can shed tears because he’s gone but we can smile because he lived. Our hearts can be empty because we can’t see him or it can be full of the love that he shared. We can cry and grieve or we can do what he’d want and smile, love, live, and go on. We are all on a journey and he has only gone ahead and prepared a place for us too, where we shall meet and part no more. We loved him but God loved him more and has him resting comfortably in his everlasting arms. May his soul rest in perfect peace.

There will be no funeral service by request.
