I am so sorry for your loss and pray that God will cover you with his comfort and peace. I did not know him personally but he must have been an awesome Fatther because he raised a wonderful, loving daughter which I am blessed to have as my sister in law. May the memories bring happiness to your hearts and may knowing you will be together with him again someday bring peace. Hugs to all of you!!!
