The life of a good and faithful man has not ended - just changed. He was always faithful to his God, his Family, and his Country. Debra, Nathan, Natalie and Mary - know that our prayers are that you be comforted in your grief. Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Aunt Lea and Uncle Bernard Reply to this comment
