I would like to thank all of you who expressed your heartfelt sympathy for my brother.
As a whole, we lost a person who managed to touch each of us in his own way, and it is that part of us he touched that will be cherished and remembered.
He was a father, brother, friend, coworker, in-law, and neighbor, but most of all he was a child of the kingdom of God.

My sympathies to the entire Moss family. I had the pleasure getting to know Mr. Moss through working at Giant Eagle. He and I always talked about football and he was truly a wonderful man. May God bless and comfort you all.
