To the Ector family what a mighty warrior a great servant of God the Father His Son Jesus Christ. He fought a good fight, he kept the faith, he finished his course. He has a great reward coming. Always smiling & he always dressed so sharp. I would always let him know it too. What a life what a man. Love y’all so much ❤️❤️

Dad, you and mom have taught me so much about love and family. I admire you, your love for mom, and your love for your family. I will miss the way you talk, and the knowledge you would share with us. What I loved the most was how you and mom didn't treat me like a daughter in law, you treated me like a daughter. I know you're at peace and I know God has wrapped his arms around you. I also know that you, mom, my dad, and my baby boy Harry are together and I pray I'll see all of you again one day.
