I am so sorry for your and your family's loss. I never met your dad, but knowing you, I will bet he was a great guy. He had to be to raise such a kind, loving man.
Take care and remember that he is still with you.

Love is the greatest gift there is, bringing us joy and sometimes breaking our hearts. Without it we may as well be a tree. God gave us the choice to love and those that do choose this gift are usually surrounded by others that love as well. Jeff, Shannon and family we are there for you and will comfort you in a HUGE blanket of Love during this very difficult time.
