Dear Eva and family,

So sorry to hear this sad news. I will miss the talks we had about family,his funny stories and how very much you and his children and grandchildren meant to him.The last time I cut his hair he had us all laughing as usual as he left the salon saying “See you next time”. May your loving memories and faith sustain you in the coming days.

Love and prayers,

I am truly sorry for your loss. I will always remember him as a man who loved his family so much. Also I remember his funny stories and the happiness he brought to me when I was limited in a father figure when I was young. I hope that you know that he will be missed by many. I pray that you find peace during this hard time.
