Cris, I am going to miss you so much, my Brother and best friend. But one day in the sweet by and by we will meet again. And to your family, I pray GOD will bless them all with HIS peace that passes all understanding. Cris and Betty were the definition of those who are the salt of the earth. In all my years, I never met two people who were the epitome of goodness and kindness. They both added value to my and Says life. We miss them deeply. May the Good Lord bless and keep you all.

I am saddened at my Uncle's death, though He is very much alive in the loving arms of His savior Jesus Christ. He was a joy to be around with his humor and love for others. Our loss is surely Heaven's gain. He will be missed here but we have the blessed hope in Jesus Christ our Lord to be resurrected to live in eternity with our redeemed loved ones. He would not want you to shed any tears as he is enjoying the newness of youth and health in a glorified body.
