My sympathy to the entire family. God waited a while until after the sadness of his wife passing away before quietly taking him to Heaven. He left behind a wonderful family. God bless.

What a beautiful obituary! Don, Debbie, Mike and families Our deepest sympathy in the loss of your father and grandfather. He has left many of us with wonderful memories. Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free I’m following the path God has laid you see. I took His hand when I heard him call I turned my back and left it all. I could not stay another day To laugh, to love, to work, to play. Tasks left undone must stay that way I found that peace at the close of day. If my parting has left a void Then fill it with remembered joy. A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss Oh yes, these things I too will miss. Be not burdened with times of sorrow I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow. My life’s been full, I savored much Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch. Perhaps my time seemed all too brief Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your hearts and peace to thee God wanted me now; He set me free. Author Unknown: Russ, Heaven is your home!!! What a beautiful place to reunite with Eileen
