    So sorry for your loss. I’m sure he is enjoying his time with the Lord Jesus Christ . Walking , running and praising Jesus all the way. It’s so hard to lose people we love, you never get over it, you just learn to live with it because we don’t get a choice when it’s someone’s time to go. It sure does help when we have faith that they are with the Lord.
