Teresa, Tina and Gina,

I am so incredibly sorry for the loss of your father. I am still in disbelief so I can only imagine how you all must feel. I am praying that God will just fill your hearts up with peace and His love to help you through this very difficult and painful time. Please be comforted that you will see him again and that he is now enjoying paradise in Heaven.

In Sympathy, and with much love,
