Another Birthday and the day God called you Home have rolled around. You are remembered every day but this special time the empty chair, the empty couch, the lack of your presence hits the heart a little bit heavier. We honor you for being the husband, father, brother, uncle, cousin, neighbor and man of God you were. You are the angel that constantly watches over me. Your precious memories are all around wherever we go. You left a lasting imprint in our home, our church and city. I do my best to continue to feed all who come by. The pandemic has changed so many things. I know Heaven has no worries. Yes, Honey, you may be gone in flesh but your spirit still lives among us.
