Our family lost the most amazing man we've ever known. He was gentle and kind. He was fiercely protective and always loyal. He has left us, but we've had our time with him. I'm sure he's having a beautiful reunion with his son that he lost at the age of four, and all our other loved ones that have gone on before. As we mourn OUR loss, remember, his joy and his laughter are echoing through heaven.
