Angel and T-U, I am saddened by the loss of such a wonderful lady. Her kindness and words of wisdom and encouragement over the years meant so much to me. She will be deeply missed, however, our loss is Heaven's gain. Your dad must be rejoicing at being reunited with his wonderful wife. Take care, and I will keep you all in my daily prayers.
