    I am so sorry to hear about your father’s passing. He was one of the kindest people I have known. I have so many fond memories of him while I was growing up on 15th Terr. He will be dearly missed by all of us who knew him. I pray that you will have the strength you need to get through this very difficult time. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
    In Sympathy,
