Beautiful, Beautiful Pops, You are are with your young loving bride Daisy and healthy boy James. There will be no more sickness, sorrow, or pain. God blessed you with a full life and brought you home as you laid your weary head to rest.

Our family: Keri, Joe,Jessenia and Estella send our love and deepest condolences to Phyllis, John, Danny, Gail, Linda Kenny, Billy and Laurie. Your father loved you all….my father also loved you all.

From the book of John:
“Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.”
