I'm happy that I got to talk to you shortly before you passed. It saddens me that we were supposed to meet for coffee that next morning but time and a busy schedule got the best of us. Please know that it was my intention to meet with you. Please have a cup of coffee with my father for me. Until we meet again... With love and prayers...
