We are heartbroken knowing your deep grief because of your Dad/Husband/Great and Grandfather's passing? But also know that your Dad knows and loves Jesus, is eternally healed and sitting at the banquet table, living in his Heavenly home that Jesus prepared for him? May God comfort you and give you peace until that glorious day that we see Jesus, reunited with all the saints who have gone before us????
