    My brother in law Herbert alias Cool Mody as Elena his daughter often called him was a cool calm and collected man as I remembered Ihim in my youth. When he reconnected with my sister and her family in one of the many talks we had when I saw him for the first time in a number of years his words were ” this is Christmas God gave me another chance with my family”. He always loved his wife and family and sought ways to make sure his wife was cared for. I’m thankful for I knew he gave his life to Christ so we’ll be able to meet again in heaven Cool Mody. To his wife sons daughter grandchildren family and friends my prayers for God’s grace mercies love and kindness rests upon you. Love always from his little sis as he called me Sandra and family in Texas. God bless🙏🏾
