I would like to wish my condolences to the friend of the family of Mr Fagan. In these times you must turn to God he promises at Revelations 21;4 that "he will wipe out every tear from thier eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.?? This has brought me Comfort and hopefully it will do the same for you.

My dearest sympathies to the Fagan family. Family. I grew up on New York Avenue in Jc. I always remembered him even when I was too young to play stickball and street hockey and bottle caps with the older guys he would let me join in because I was a tomboy and I was so happy and he made me happy to let me play and I also knew him from others parts of J C. I am deeply saddened FOR your family loss as I am also saddened to.May God Bless everyone in the family and of course, - -Kevin
