The one thing that I will always think about for him was mints. Not the ones that you twist the sides but the actual small baglike packages.he always had them during church whenever we went with them to go to theyre church. I will never forget grandpa.

  12. My heart goes out to the family. King was a man that did not deserve to suffer with cancer. I pray for a cure someday God is in control He is good. This is not the last only the beginning; King is with the Lord and joined with others including Jesus. Let this be a living testimony not of sorrow and pain. Let God heal all wounds and follow his path. My prayers and thoughts to all the family. I wrote a poem based upon the Hymn The Old Rugged Cross. As Billy Graham said in all sermons look toward the Cross. Jesus Christ suffered and death was not his victory; his victory is the resurrection Heaven. Look toward the Heaven of God and may the peace of God be in your lives. Forgive and follow the Cross King followed the path and now he is in Heaven. God Bless all of you Christ is with all of you. I loved King and I love all of you in Gods way. The Holy Eucharist that in my life. Thanks to be God. Glory to be God and praise his Holy name. The peace of God is with you.

  13. Our heartfelt condolences to the family, I know how difficult this moment in time is – for you all. I wish you fond memories, loving thoughts and prayers for you all to heal. Remember those we love don’t go away they are in our hearts everyday. Love Linda and Reginald
