I know personally the loss that is felt in your hearts at this time, and the road ahead looks to difficult to follow. The loss is so heart breaking and the loneliness seems to never end. We have to remember all the good times and the love that was shared. I couldn't say this to you because it hit such a tender spot in my heart. Sylvia , Mary I have known you two for a while now and you seem like family. You where there for me when I needed a shoulder. Now I am lending both of you my shoulder. My condolences to the entire family. May the Angels be with you all at this time as your Father walks threw the gates of Heaven. God Bless you all.
