His favorite verse to turn to during difficult times was Psalms 91:
“‘Because he loves me,’ says the LORD, ‘I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.
With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation.’”
He was very devoted to God and put all his faith and trust in Him.
