Nancy,it saddens me to tell you again so soon how sorry I am for your loss. Have comfort in the fact that your parents are together again. We’ll be praying for your family.
Nancy- I was shocked to hear the news of your dad passing and even more shocked to find out about your mom. I am so sorry and you have my deepest sympathy. I really loved your mom and will miss her. I never go to know your dad as much as your mom, but he was a good man,too. If I can do anything to help let me know.
