I was so surprised and extremely saddened to see that your blessed father had gone on ahead of us. I didn't know him as well as I knew Craig and Debbie. But I know he was an integral part of your family and a dedicated father and grandfather. May God's love and peace sustain you in the days to come. I pray your mother is well and filled with His love
