Kam,
Our present sorrows stem from the physical absence of our loved ones. Our parting is only an interruption. For we do not mourn as those without hope. Our Peace rises in Thanksgiving for Eternal Unfailing Promise. "It is better to trust God's invisible truth than to place confidence in man's observable facts" ___ Psalm 118:8.

I had the pleasure of working alongside and managing this wonderful man. He was always so kind and friendly and an inspiration of how to carry yourself through life. I never saw him angry or upset and he was such a respectful gentleman. I am such a better person for knowing him. Many days after leaving the company I often thought of him and his lovely wife. I will truly miss his light in the world.
