Sorry for your great loss. He will be greatly missed. Let his mannerisms, his personality , and memories of him fill the gaps of your aching hearts. In time as your hearts heal, think of the time when you will see him again, During the resurrection of christ. Draw comfort from these words. All those in God's memory will here Jesus voice and come back to life. What a grand reunion this is going to be when this promise of GOD take place Revelations 21:4. Please accept My deepest sympathy to the family.
