Ann, I was saddened to see your Dad’s obituary in the paper, but struck by what a long and full life he had. How lucky you are to have had him so long. Losing a parent is very hard, hold your Mom close in the years ahead. May a lifetime of happy memories sustain you in the days and months to come. I’m sure your Dad and Mom couldn’t have asked for a more loving daughter. You are in my heart and prayers.
