Tamra,
I never had the chance to meet your dad, but enjoyed the many stories you shared with me about him and your family. I'm thinking of you. "In times of sorrow, love heals. May your hearts be touched by the love you have known and the joys you have shared. May you find comfort in knowing that caring, gentle thoughts are with you now."
