Known as Sunshine, Sonny, Daddy and Gran D, he loved two things in this life, his Lord and his family. Everything he did reflected that love and a void will be left that can never be filled. However, we rejoice in the fact that he is walking the streets of Heaven, and we will see him again one day.
Matthew 25:21” His Lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy Lord.”
