So sorry to hear about your loss. Even though it's been years, we still have wonderful memories of your dad as a classmate, etc. and when your family used to visit us when we lived on the farm. May it help to know that you're in the thoughts and prayers of others at this time. We hope you have many wonderful memories to fill in the sad times in the future. God bless you all.
