I am extremely sorry for the loss of your dad. I know how much you will miss him. It was wonderful to see the bond that the two of you had, you were more then just father and son, you were two of a kind, you were the best of friends, and it was always a joy to listen to you talk about your dad. Both Everton and I want you to know that we are here for you, and we are sending love to you and your entire family.
Always your friend, Kelly~
