Lou Ann, Ron and Ken..........I am so sorry about the loss of your dad. He was a good man. I can't imagine how you will miss him. Love to all of you and your mom, especially during this Christmas holiday.

I am sorry to learn of your family sorrow. The death of a loved one is painful. If I may, I'd like to share scripture found in your Bible that may comfort you in some way. John 6:40 reads...For this is the will of my Father, that everyone that beholds the Son and exercises faith in him should have everlasting life, and I will resurrect him in the last day. You see, according to this promise, we have hope.
