My sincere condolences to his family. We never know when it is our time to go and he was able to go out on his own terms it appears, doing a pleasurable past time. Rest in peace friend...
Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
Courage and perserverance have a magical talisman; before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into the air.
Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.
