    My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. I know you will miss him but he will miss you also. You know that his welcoming into HEAVEN will ease all his pains and sufferings. I remember my old bed time prayers of asking GOD ” if I should die before I wake I pray to GOD my soul to take”. GOD had a plan for your dad and part of that plan was to teach us about about the love of Jesus and GOD, by knowing Loretta I say his plan was well received. Thanks be to GOD for letting him pass so peacefully. Loretta if there is anything I can do please let me know.
