Dear God, thank you for taking care of Uncle Harry for 84 blissful years! He was so kind and generous! Loving others before himself and such a giving man in all ways! It’s very hard to move on from such a loss here on earth but I know heaven opened up those pearly gates and wow, what a celebration of life! As you are in Jesus’ arms, so are we down here in our temporary home! Although you have no more sorrow, pain, suffering and tears, just lots of tears of joy and AMEN-God said, well done, my son! Come hither! I love you so much, Uncle Harry and the days ahead are going to be empty without you sharing it with us! You remain a blessed memory of peace, joy, strong faith, man of God, hope and so much love remain in all our hearts! I will see you again on some brighter day! Until then, love you , Kimmy
