My dad

Dad passed away quietly.  With a magnificant peacefulness that I had prayed so much for.  With dignity and respect.  With family surrounding him.  I will miss him SOOOOOOOO much but he would not have wanted to remain like he was.  My beliefs allow me comfort in the knowledge that he is in heaven with my God.  His father and mother and so many others that have gone before him.  Love, Elle

Elle, I am so very sorry about the passing of your dear father. While we know that is what is best for them, our selfish side has such a hard time letting go. I truly hope you will think often of the beautiful memories of your dad and that those thoughts will give you strength through the coming days. God bless you.

So sorry to hear about your dad. The time we have with our parents seems so short when we look back, so I hope you can treasure every memory. My sympathies to you and your family, with special prayers for your mother.

Dearest Elle,
I am so very sorry at the loss of your Loving Father.
Having lost my own not so long ago - i know how you are feeling.
I am glad that he is at peace in Heaven with his family, and that he died with the dignity he wanted.
My thoughts and prayers are with you, and your family.
Love, Candy
