Pam and Pinky,
I am so sorry to hear about your fathers passing.
I take comfort that having my father pass earlier this year, that the two of them are having neighborly conversations, walks and watching over us all.
Please know I am here right around the corner if you need to talk.
Cosette and the entire Livas family.
