Anna and Family
My heart is filled with sorrow and joy. Sorrow, because I did not know your Dad, but through your family get together photos. I was getting to know your whole family and wow what a family. Just the smiles on everyone’s face and the joy in your pictures. You made me laugh when you would capture your Dad doing something funny and you would make a cute smart comment. Thank You for sharing him with people that did not know him.
Now we get to Joy, There is joy in death. Knowing your loved one is free of pain and reunited with their loved ones that left before them. He is free of pain and of filling sick, he is with your Mother the woman he fell in love with and created a family. The Joy is also- one day we will reunite with our Father and Families when our time is called upon.
May God Bless All of the Family and Friends that came to know this loving Family.
