    I am so sorry for your loss. I talked to him everyday he was at work. He would tell me how he was doing. He was in my prayers to get better. I never imagined my last conversation with him would be the last time I would see him. He was always so nice and upbeat. Your family is in my prayers. You had an angel in your life. He certainly touched my life. God bless.
