We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of our dear father, husband, brother, and grandfather. As Ecclesiastes 3:1-4 reminds us, To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up. A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance.
