The Family would like to thank you for attending today and for the outpouring of love and support for us in this difficult time. We are so very thankful for the many lives Dad touched. We are also thankful that we know the Hope of Glory and we shall see Dad again. He was, and continues to be, a wonderful example of a loving husband and a blessed reflection of our Heavenly Father. Dad will surely be missed. He was a special Man of God and certainly was "Semper Fi"

Always Faithful.
