Saddened to hear of this. He was a really good guy. Enjoyed seeing him every time he came in to the hardware store.

He will surely be missed ...he was a great cousin to have growing up...always protective of me because I was younger than him. I am praying for you Lacey, Patrick, and Brittany in the days to come. Just know that God will look after you all in this time of sorrow

"The Bible aptly describes death as an 'enemy," because it robs us of our loved one. We are helpless to its "sting." But not Jehovah God. At Hosea 13:14 it reads:"From the power of the Grave I will redeem them;From death I will recover them. Where are your stings, O Death? Where is your destructiveness, O Grave?" This assurance from God gives you the hope of seeing your loved one again. My condolences."
