Mom The poem by Henry Scott-Holland speaks that death is nothing at all as Dad has only slipped away into the next room. The life you shared is untouched, unchanged. Remember to laugh and remember the great timesthink of dad only as being out of sight and having gone a head of all of us as Father Peffley mentioned in the church service at St. Mary's.

I am so proud to have been able to call you both my parents. Dad is watching over us every moment of every second and we know that he will always be in our thoughts and prayers.

Love you bunches...and always here for you.

Love, Therese
