So sorry for loosing such a sweet man. I remember with smiles. I still have the wood bowls he made and cherish them. I plan on taking them with me to Ecuador. Every time I see them I've remember his kind hands made them. May you all find comfort from family and friends and know the God of all comfort is with you.
