My deepest condolences to your family with the loss of your beloved. I had the privilege of walking among this hero for nearly 5 years when I worked in the community where he resided. The smile on his face lit a room, his kindness never wavered, his soul was the most genuine and sincere. Rest in peace, dear soldier. God Bless!
