Jane, Mrs. Hare- So sorry for your loss. Losing a parent and/or a husband is very painful no matter how old or ill the person was. His memories and legacy will live on forever in your hearts and all those who loved him. Keep those memories alive and he will live on forever with you. My deepest condolences to you both. I pray that each day will get a little easier for the both of you. Call on me if you need me. I will see you both tomorrow.

Jane, I hurt and grieve with your family and know what it's like to lose a good Daddy. I will always remember your parents at church along with mine and remember exactly where they sat every Sunday. May our Lord comfort you with sweet memories and carry you through the difficult days ahead. Heaven is even sweeter now.
Much love,
