Deb- Hearing about your Dad through you all of these years, helps me realize what a loss he will be to you and your family. He was a great guy, I'm sure! I will pray for comfort to you and your family.

Some people say that

when someone we love

is taken from our lives

that we must find something

to take their place.

There is an empty space

where that person once was

and even though

it is a lonely feeling

it is there for a reason.

For even God would not allow

Himself to fill this space---

He creates it so that

we can fill it with all the

beautiful memories and moments

once shared with our loved ones.

Never try to close this space---

It is our only key to the past.
