He is preceded in death by his parents, Hugo and Leola; sisters, Corrine and Carol; nephew, Mark and a grandson, Caleb. ?For what is it to die but to stand naked in the wind and melt into the sun? And what is it to cease breathing, But to free the breath from its restless tides, that it may rise and expand and seek God, unencumbered? Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing. And when you have reached the mountaintop, then you shall begin to climb. And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance.? Gibran
