A humble man
Spreading humor where possible
Honest and caring
God loving, positive minded
Devoted to his loved ones
He walked amidst life
not so much worrying about what material items he had
but what love and help he could spread
He was there to help mothers and fathers
To guide children, whether it be his own or others.
To assist in church duties
To be a role model
Some of his last words of wisdom were that we should be nice to
everyone, that everyone is good, and to make sure that you tell them
that you love them.
