Going to miss you buddy. You’re such a dear brother in Christ and my life was blessed because the Lord allowed our paths to cross. Through all that you and Ninfa endured these past 10 months, your faith in Jesus was powerfully displayed to us all. I look forward to seeing you again as we walk the “streets of gold” in the presence of Jesus.

Stacey Gleason
