Mark and family –

Our thoughts, prayers and love are with you all today as you lay your dad to rest. You were a devoted son and loved him well. What a full life he lived!

This has been a hard, sad time for your family. As your message on Facebook stated he is in a better place. From this world he did leave behind his family, loved ones and friends but walked through the door to his new eternal home with Our Savior Jesus Christ, It sounds like your father was a man who accomplished many things during his time on this earth. Imagine the excitement of the heavenly hosts when he entered heaven. We pray for comfort for all of your family

He was a truly amazing father in law, even in the short time I got to know him. He was very loving, sweet and kind. The Emerick’s have lost an incredible member of the family.
My condolences to family and friends.
Love and prayers
Sarah M E.
