    Condolences to all during this time of grief. Almighty God cares about the pain that we feel. At Psalms 34:18 it tells us that; "Jehovah God is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit." Soon all pain, suffering and death will be no more. (Revelation 21:4)

    Ohhhhh Big Sexy, your nickname that we gave you 15 years ago, what are we all going to do without you??? I never thought in a million years that I would ever be reading your obituary this young. You were someone that I could always talk too about anything. I'm shocked and very saddened to know that just last eeek I talked to you and now you are gone. You fought such a brave fight and you had the biggest heart of anyone that I know. Many prayers to all of his family and please know that he will be greatly missed.💔
