    I am very sorry for not being able to attend. He was such a good man to me and my family. I find comfort that he is now with the Lord.

    My best friend I’m gonna miss! There after you left AWG we spent a lot of time together, Either at work or on the phone after work. Sometimes I catch myself still calling your old number.

    Dear Lord,
    Please keep this mans soul close to you as he was a good guy. Also one more thing, get him a soda preferably Coke, and put some peanuts inside the soda. This was one of his favorite drinks. RIP brother.

    It was sad to hear about the death of your loved one. I am a neighbor living in Overland Park. I found out about the death when going through obituaries .

    I wanted to share with you this comforting scripture taken from John chapter 5 verse 28.In part, it says that the dead will rise in the future (during the paradise).As you continue to read this scripture, it will provide you comfort beyond measure.

    You can also check on the website for more encouragement from the scriptures
