    There are simply no words to convey this deep and personal loss. Trannie – although you were a Steelers fan and not a Kansas City Chiefs fan – I never held that against you. Although you joined the Corps and not the Navy – I never held that against you. πŸ™‚ Watt – I miss you terribly! My gratitude is endless!!. Watt – THANK YOU for your powerful honesty. THANK YOU for your encouragement, your sheer belief in me – when I didn’t believe in myself. Your vast knowledge of ‘all things’ trivia. THANK YOU for your emotional security. You will always be one of my dearest and closest friends. LOVE YOU TRANNIE RED!!

    God had reached down and said son its time to come home no more pain, suffering, tears. An angel at the head of the line watching down smiling and I’m pretty sure saying to everyone “don’t cry for me I’m good” for God knew best. To his family sorry on the loss of a son, brother, nephew,uncle,a friend to many he will truly be missed.

    My friend, brother in Christ fought a good fight as he held on until he was ready to go back home. Truly, words can not express the brother and sister hood that I will miss dearly. A true rock that held me and many up through and by faith, mercy and the grace God.

    My prayers will always be with this amazing family to stay strong in faith and no that God never, ever make a mistake and everything happens for a reason. Sometimes we may not understand at the moment but through it all God will allow the Holy Spirit to help us understand not only physically; but, spiritually God’s purpose of life and death. To many death is a gift from God especially when our heart is pure and clean. Who wouldn’t want to meet his or her Father in Heaven? Amen! God is good all the time! Love you all!!!!!!
