My heart breaks for our loss, and my loss as well. He was to me a spiritual godfather who, at a critical time in my life helped me personally to plant my own feet in the path to God's gracious gift of His unconditional love. I shall miss him but I also shall look forward to seeing him in heaven, and as Joyce Griffith has said, to be able to sit in on his conversations, this time not about God, but with God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
My heart also would reach out to those of his family who will carry on without him May God bless them each and everyone.
