    Was sad to hear of your dad’s passing. Heard from your pastor that he had a truly wonderful spirit during his suffering. Keep his good spirit in your heart day to day and remember all that he taught you. I lost my Dad several months ago, no easy thing for sure. At least they can continue to watch over and help us from Heaven.

    Take care:)
