Zonnie, my dear friend I am sorry for your loss but I know your dad is in heaven rejoicing with our Savior. I pray for your mom & sisters as well as you to be comforted & held tightly by His loving arms during this time. Thank you for the moments I had to share in your family time with your dad a couple of summers ago. I loved visiting the farm with him and watching him with his grandchildren as well. Those times are so special and I know he will be missed. Praying for you all.
