Having special memories of special people has always been how I have dealt with loss. Knowing he was a truly good man is a beautiful start. You certainly loved him enough to let us know about him. Thank you

I don't know why I'm crying. I am usually very pragmatic about death. He called me LoLo.

He lived at peace and I have no doubt The Universe has welcomed him into the higher echelon of the "good ones".

He had a very quiet strength. Never raised his voice in anger but went through life quietly getting things done. One day I hope to be just like him.
