Melissa, my heartfelt sympathy for the loss of your father is with you, Matt, Mike and and Judit. His spirit lives on forever. I fondly remember him visiting my home. I never met anyone who was as awesome at fixing things as your father was. Take comfort in knowing that you did everything in the world for him, the rest being in God's hands, and to him you were the world.
