When I read of your passing all I could think about is you coming into pick up Gabby and how she would light up the moment she saw you. It was only a look that a daughter has for her father. I am so deeply saddened by your passing and pray for your wife, that beautiful little girl and your family.

I offer my most heartfelt condolences to the family. There are no words sufficient enough to cover over the grief of losing your beloved son, dear husband, father, and grandson. In difficult times like this family and friends can offer much needed support. May their love and comfort be a constant at your door now in the the days to come. Most important is our relationship with God (Psalm 83:18) I pray that he gives you peace and that you find strength in him, his word and his promise of a resurrection in Isaiah 26:19.
