Rejoice and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. St. Matthews 5:12. Your wife, Elena, children Stephanie and Lyman IV, your mom Ingrid and all your family and friends will always remember you with love and gratitude. God Bless you. Blessed are the merciful for they shall see God. Blessed are the peacemakers; for they shall be called the children of God. Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness sake: for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven. Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely for my sake.
