I'd like to express my heartfelt condolences to you and your family on the loss of your father, grandfather and brother. May God give your family the strength needed to endure at this time of Sorrow. Soon God will use Jesus to end all suffering including the pain you are feeling right now," and he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore" this is a personal promise from God that is found at Revelation 21:4. May these promises from God give you peace now and real hope for the future.

Such a great guy! The world already feels a little smaller without him in it. Loved his gregariousness and his aptitude for conversation. He felt like your best friend from the moment you met him. In truth, I imagine most people felt that way about him! Rejoicing with you that he's in heaven and fully restored to full health and vitality. My love and prayers are with the family.
