So sorry about your father’s death. I only knew him through FB from Carol, who spoke of him in reference to being up north. Carol adored her father, “Dad”. She is blessed to have such a long and loving relationship with her Dad and family. Families are gold, but have long lasting value and only get richer over time. May your family find comfort during this grieving time and cherish all the memories.
