My heartfelt condolence on the passing of your kind husband. I will always remember him with his welcoming smile and hug whenever I saw him at church. He was a positive individual and loved to share the gospel and a good meal. I will always remember the dinner Derek and I shared with you both and trading cooking recipes from his culture. I pray the Lord comforts and supports you in all ways temporally and spiritually. May Peace be with you and love surround you. Sister Paula Edwards
