Bryan and Donna,
I just found out about your dad. I would’ve been at the service if I had known. I know that he is in a better place now and not suffering. I’m praying that your grief is replaced by your sweet memories. He was from that “great generation” of men who worked sacrificed for family, worked hard, raised their children with good values and a belief in God. You were fortunate to have the opportunity to observe those qualities and continue to share those strengths with your children. My prayers for your strength.
