While his life was short, everyone who knew him during this time was most certainly blessed by his presence. We anxiously awaited his arrival and once he joined us in the world he visited with us for a short time before leaving and was carried away by the embrace of our Lord. "There is no foot too small to leave an imprint in the world" and he did just that. He walked into our lives and touched our hearts forever.
Visitation will be from 1 PM to 3 PM Thursday, August 26 at The Ripley Funeral Home.
