I am so very sorry for the lose of your dad. I do understand a bit what a difficult time it must be for you. I lost my dad several years ago. I do know over time it doe gets a bit easier. Small things like smells, foods and places bring a happy close feeling back to you without so much sorrow I knew my dad was in the presence of The Father of All Creation but I also knew being human we are a bit selfish and would rather him here . I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

I miss seeing Frank walking his 'beat' on Belfast Avenue and on to New Dorp. He was a very good neighbor and he should rest in peace.
