On Tuesday morning at 12:35 am, September 3, 2019 our God and creator looked down from Heaven and had compassion upon his suffering servant. God heard his cry and he pitied his every groan. He then sent to his rescue one of his angels to call him from labor to rest.. We loved him but his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ loved him more and has already prepared a place where he can rest in perfect peace.
