    I’m so sorry for the loss of your loved one. Dads are special and are missed so much. When we lose someone we love at times the pain may seem unbearable. Please know that others care and that God heals the brokenhearted, Psalm 147:3. In the days to come, may your precious memories help you to cope.

  3. I hope very much he rests in peace. I love you grandpa. I miss you.
