I am so sorry. He was the same age as my Daddy when he died and there is just no explanation to why so young. It breaks my heart for all of you. Prayers for the family, May God Bless You All.

Marlene and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I know words are of no comfort right now. Just know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. I pray that God wraps you and your family in his arms to comfort you as only he can during this trying time. Love to all. Trina Burns
