  1. Dear Dad,
    It has been six days since you passed. I miss you like crazy but at the same time know you are in a better place and at peace. You and Ma must be dancing up a storm in heaven.

  2. His passing is a loss to all who had the pleasure of knowing him. His life is a wonderful memory for me.

  3. Dear Barbara my condolences on the passing of your father. Hopefully as your initial sadness passes you will come to realize that he has been released to join your mother in the beyond, where youth, laughter and happiness prevail. In time may you remember the good times shared and smile when you catch yourself saying something your father did. Again my condolences to you and your lived ones
