My deepest thoughts and prayers are with your family. I never met you but knowing your two daughters Stephine and Lindsey, if you were anything like them, you were a man of high morals and integrity. You have two of the finest daughters I have ever met. You leave behind wonderful daughters and two beautiful granddaughters. You will truly be missed, and God will watch over them. May you rest in peace, and may all the fond memories you have created live forever. God Bless.
