We are so sorry to hear of his passing. We know he is at peace doing what he loves to do. I can just hear the beautiful music him and my uncle Dicky are playing together.

One way God comforts those who mourn is through his Word, the Bible. 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4. Examining what it teaches about the dead and the hope of the resurrection will bring comfort. Acts 24:15. With condolences to the family. May the memories you cherish of him bring you comfort too.
