Faith, My sympathies to you. It’s been a difficult ending to a long road for you all. When he left this Earth, he held you in his mind, pleased with what you have accomplished. He watched his little girl grow into a mom, an accomplished student, a responsible citizen, and devoted friend to many. May memories ease the ache in your heart… Love, Mamama
