The loss of someone you have known your whole life is a painful experience. I know firsthand and have lived through it more times than I can count. Time is a wonderful thing and will soon heal the hurt that you all are feeling now. We keep on going with all the memories of the good times held close to our hearts. That's the job they give to the ones they left behind.

Your favorite "oldest" Son-in-law.
