Irene and family. My prayers are with you during this difficult time. I am grateful for all the times we shared together. He was a rock in my world and a connection to the East. Let the memories keep you smiling and know that he is not far from your heart. Find comfort that his pain is gone and he is with Jesus Christ and our Heavenly Father.
