By Mark A. Leon

Rest in peace sweet bearded angel

You gave love with your kind words
Laughter with your undeniable zest for life
Friendship with an extended arm to the world

The Lord’s hand will guide you to rest in your eternal home

With outstretched arms, you welcomed us
A light-footed wizard on the dance floor
An orator of the times
Documentarian of friendship

A gentle soul
A guiding light
A beacon of wisdom
Never without a smile

With unconditional acceptance, you wove a blanket to cover our fears, shield our worries and warm our spirits

Words cannot illuminate the magnitude of your impact; yet you graced us with your stories
A blessing send from above
Faith by your side
A path of kindness as your shepherd

With your smile, you shined
A man, husband, father, friend, an inspiration

You leave a legacy of a lifetime of delicate humanity so few will ever match

Decency without judgement
Humble grace
A servant to goodness wrought with affection

Your charity fed our hearts
Your decency gave us hope

The world is a better place now
For this, we will never forget
