I'm very sorry for your loss. The loss of a father is always very trying, but you can find comfort in the fact that he obviously had a very rich and fulfilling life, and in the many fond memories of the relationship that you shared with him. Unfortunately, death is a part of life, but those memories live on and will provide you with the comfort that will carry you through this trying time. God Bless. Dave Thiel, Wet size manufacturing.
