"Finally your work is done and now it's okay to take that long vacation. You will be forever missed by all who've been lucky enough to cross your path. Your amazing generosity and tenacity will live on in so many of our lives. You've been an outstanding father who taught me how to love, respect, and to always give back and bless others. Your journey has been difficult and tiresome. Although life won't be the same without you, your memories will live on. It brings us great comfort in knowing that you are now resting peacefully and comfortably in the presence of your Creator… Until we meet again."
