I can't believe he is gone from our lives. I know this is a very sad time for you. At least he did not suffer and went peacefully in his sleep. He has been so helpful whenever anyone needed a special favor. He was so willing to help. May God grant him peace. I am sure he is doing what he always enjoyed, taking some wonderful shots. If only we could see them. Maybe he will send some to us in our dreams.
God bless you Cathy-Jo for being the best daughter he could ask for.
