“My dear wife and lovely daughter you both were the light of my life and I cannot express the grief I feel at your sudden departure,” he wrote.
“May God bless your souls. My love, it is hard to believe that you have left this beautiful world behind, but I am sure you and my lovely daughter are in a better place now. A thousand words won’t bring you guys back, I know because I’ve tried; Neither will a thousand tears, I know because I’ve cried. But 1 strong believe i have is that Our memories together will keep me going. I feel your presence even though you have gone. I hand you both over to God.”
