I was so sorry to hear about your Dad’s passing. It is such a hard thing for a daughter to loose her Dad. He must have been a great Dad since you are such a great person. Condolences to your family. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. I will really miss Daryl’s smile and he never failed to give a big hardy wave as I passed him in town on his bike or at a game.
