Losing a dad is hard. Losing a GREAT dad is an ache not easily soothed. I didn't know your Dad, but I know his daughter, and his work ethic, honesty and loyalty are reflected in everything you do, Donna. My deepest condolences to you and your family. He was well loved and loved you in return. May you find solace in Psalm 121 and know that you are not alone. As we watch our fathers leave this life, we have a Heavenly Father who will never leave us. Prayers that you would know a heart that has known such love carries the love forward. ~ Juice Meyers, Bridgeton, New Jersey

I am so very sorry for your family's loss. Your Dad was a very good man who loved you all. I am sure that he and your Mom are dancing now in Heaven happily. God bless you all. Know that your parents are always with you. ~ Maria Roan, Florence, New Jersey
