  1. Dear Kathy, Donna, & Susie:
    Over the years I have seen both your dad & mom. I had a nice visit with your dad just a few years ago. It was very nice to have seen him after all this time. I’m sorry for the sadness that your family is experiencing; know though that Dad has reunited with family and friends and the happiness that this has created for him.

    He will be a guardian angel for those he loved.

    Please take care and eventually the pain will fade; you will always
    have memories to comfort you.

  2. To:
