Not many people would know this about him, but he was a great artist and did great leatherwork. It was such a true talent. Small tidbit He had the prettiest handwriting for a man. You will be missed and memories cherished. We little knew that day, God was going to call your name. In life you were loved dearly, In death, you are still loved. It breaks our heart to lose you. You did not go alone.

For part of us went with you, the day God called you home. We will cherish the memories, even though we cannot see you, you will be in our hearts. Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same, But as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.
