What a delightful man. He would always be willing to help out working on our car or mower. And the only payment he wanted was my spaghetti. He loved it and he had such a gentle spirit. He called my husband Philly for he loved all sports from there. Our prayers and love go to the Family his faith has ended in sight. Praise God!! Rick and Theresa Blanchfield of Clayton De

I'm sorry for your family's loss. The scriptures are a source of comfort during difficult times. John 5:28-29 gives us a promise of a resurrection that would make it possible of seeing our dear love ones again here on this earth. This is a promise by means of Jehovah and his son Jesus Chirst. A wonderful time we can look forward too.
