Our Father, which art in heaven

Hallowed be thy Name.

Thy Kingdom come.

Thy will be done on earth, As it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us for our trespasses, As we forgive them that trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation,

But deliver us from evil.

For thine is the kingdom, The power, and the glory,

For ever and ever. Amen.

He was one of my favorite and loyal customers at Kroger. He was always happy and smiling. He brought me little souvenirs from Puerto Rico when he'd go visit his mom. He brought me spaghetti dinner one evening to work. Such a kind man. He will be missed.
