|So very, very sorry for your loss. Losing a beloved parent is one of the hardest things we endure in this lifetime and life will never be the same again. However, you can rejoice in knowing he is now with the Lord and suffers no longer and that he has instilled in his children and grandchildren the drive and intrinsic abilities to overcome any adversity. May God be with him always and with you.|
