    I am so sorry for your loss! He is healthy and joyous in heaven, reunited with so many that he loved but it doesn't make the pain of saying good bye any easier. I will miss talking to him, he was an intelligent man and always had some tidbit of information to share about so many subjects! Your love and support made his last years easier. He will be missed.
