My sincere sympathies to Susan and Sharon. No matter how old we are it’s devastating to say goodbye to our parents. I had to say goodbye to my Mom this year also. Prayers for you to help you during this time.

HE’S JUST YOUR DAD, AND YOU LOVE HIM.
A father’s life is a story told by God. In the scheme of life, my father was, by his choice and action, one of the humblest people you’ll ever meet. Yet, he became the greatest, most loved and valued person in the lives of many, especially mine.
As I grew, I began to step back from him and leave him for my own life – it was only then that I could measure and fully appreciate how truly great he was.
I know for certain that I will never lose my dad’s love – even to death. For to continue to live in the hearts of those you love is not to die.
He will continue to participate in every act, thought and decision I make. His love has left an indelible imprint in the hearts and minds of many, but especially in my memories and always in my heart.
I thank God that I am a small part of his life’s story. I find comfort in knowing that my life will forever be enriched by having shared his love.

My thoughts and prayers for the family. I worked with Mr. Serio many, many years ago at Fairbanks Morse. I have fond memories of he and his family.
