A man of only a few spoken words with a smile that narrated a beautiful story. To have met an individual like yourself was to have felt a love at first sight. You led and ultimately reached the destination to your journey of righteousness. Although you may not be in our presence in physical form, you will remain in our memories and hearts forever. The real world has lost a great person and heaven has gained an angel. A heart unlike no other, a heart that grew in size every time it beat. Promises have been easy to make but difficult to deliver but when promises were not easy to make you were always guaranteed to deliver. When misery seemed to only follow us we could always count on you to chase it away. When days became pitch black you graced over us with sunlight. When frowns ruled over our face you introduced laughter into our life. The love that exists for you will never perish the memories we carry will never vanish and your legacy will forever live on.
