Angela I see where you got that beautiful smile that always makes you feel welcome. I don’t know what you’re feeling but I’ve lost my Dad also so I can guess. The family he leaves behind is where the hurt is, he has none. You know now that he will also be looking out for you and your family.
God bless you Angela and all your family
You will be in my prayers as soon as I quit typing.
I love you Friend!!!!!

Remembering when you two became engaged and your glow when you told us. Also, remember your beautiful wedding at the little church, was it Oak Grove?
I am so very sorry for your loss. It is hard but time and happy memories will make it easier.
I love you,
