I just read this and learned of your dad's passing almost a year ago. You too were blessed with wonderful parents of the "Greatest Generation". I assume you moved to Houston after retirement to be around your grand kids you love so much.
My Best To You Always,

Dear Susan, I feel so blessed to have known your loving family. I regret that I didn't hear of your Dad's passing until after the service. May all the wonderful memories of your parents bring you comfort during this difficult time.
