My dearest Dad. I know it was a blessing that God decided to take you quickly and with the least amount of suffering during those last days here on earth. This is still so difficult...you see, you're my Dad, and I had wished you here forever. As for Mom, I can't begin to imagine the pain and heartbreak she is feeling--you were her world. Dad, I promise to always be there for her anytime she needs. You both are the best parents I could have ever asked for ...and I am thankful that you both were chosen for me. So from every part of my heart, I love you Dad and miss you more than words. Love, Melody

Just a few words to express my sympathy: Sadness is such an unpleasant experience. Hoping that Lawrence's friends and and family can replace the sadness with the pleasant memories you had with him. (From a concerned observer).
