I am so very sorry that your dad has passed from this world. Working together, you shared many stories about your dad with me and I know how important he was to you. I have no doubt in my mind that he will always watch over you! You are in my prayers today and in the days to come. May he rest in peace until you meet again in paradise where there are no tears or good-byes.
