Truely sorry for your loss. I knew him for most, if not all, of his 40 years of dedicated service as a DHIA tester. Also had the pleasure of watching him play Softball upon occasion. He was a fine man and will be missed by many.

I am sorry to hear of your loss. May you find comfort in the resurrection promise at John 5:28,29 that reads; "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming when all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." The Bible gives us hope that one day our dead loved ones will be brought back to life.
