    My Deepest Condolences to you and yours. I am so deeply saddend by this.  I lost my father awhile back. I was devistated.  I can about emagine what you all  must be going through. It takes time. Is about all I can say. Take time to take care of you self. And most importantly,  hold on to those happy memories. & dont let them go. They will help you through the harder times. Hour by hour, just keep moving forward. Slowly, with time, it does get alittle easer. It's been 6 years for me know. I can smile & talk 'bout happy moments. Just hang in there, peace does find you. My Sympathies, Love to you and yours always.

    Dear Family, I am deeply sorry for your loss; the Bible promises that the day will soon come when God will wipe out every tear from our eyes and death will be no more. Revelation 21:3,4 Please accept my deepest sympathies
