  7. Kathy,
    I just found this site and wanted to express my sympathy to you and your family.

    I lost my Dad, who was also my ROCK, 19 years ago March 10th, and I know how difficult it is to lose a Dad. The good side of it is we know we will see them again on the other side. May you find some comfort in knowing that, and in the peace that only God can give.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
    God Bless you and your family,
    Joy
