I am so very sorry to hear of the loss of your dad. Although I did not know him, I feel privileged to know you and Amy.You are “great people” and obviously come from great parents. Hopefully, you will take comfort knowing your dad will be reunited with your mother that I am sure you both loved so much! May God be with you and your whole family during this difficult time in your lives. I am proud to say you are my friend! Good luck and God bless you all!
