It is with heart felt sadness that we learn of my cousin's passing. His great fortune was to have a loving and caring family that traveled with him in his final years of facing life's challenges. Our good fortune was to have connected with his wonderful wife and family in the twilight of life. The recent years brief family friendship we had revealed a man of love and compassion for his family and friends but especially for his dear wife. It was truly a gift from God that our lives touched, if for only a moment.
