Carrie, I am so sorry for the loss of your father. I pray you will hold on to memories that make you smile because he lived, and that your tears because he's gone will soon give way to confidence and strength you gained from your relationship. Dads can never be replaced. I know he was proud of you. God's peace to you and your whole family.
Pr. Karen
