    Revelation 21:4
    He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away

    Ken, you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Your father was a gift and a light that will shine on this earth forever. I will miss his stories.
    Sympathy, love and hugs,
    Kathy
