    I am truly devastated by your passing. I know you are in a better place free from suffering. I am so thankful for having such a wonderful, hardworking and dedicated dean of students on my team. You had a remarkable way of connecting with your students. You were firm yet fair. God has truly called home a spirited, thoughtful and caring soldier. Thank you for having my back and making sure I was ok.To me, you left us way too soon. To God, the time is just right for you to leave this earthly dwelling. Rest well my friend until we meet again. Heaven has gained a true warrior.

      I have never met a more caring and compassionate soul. You are definitely one of my favorites. I will never forget you and how much you impacted my childrens life and myself as I struggled through school too. I always said to you, that you have no idea how important you are to your students and I’m sure some parents as well. As I sit hear, going through the obituaries…I saw your loving face. Just learning this news has me devastated.
      You will be greatly missed Bro. Craig.

    To my Best Friend Erica. My heart is aching for you. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. Revelation 21:4, Please know that I love you and I’m here for you.
