Dear Rich,
God just told me that your Dad passed away, & a quick search confirmed that he has gone to Heaven. My wonderful Dad passed away three years ago, so I know how hard it is 😥 I’m happy that you have wonderful family support! I’m praying for your comfort, & for your family during this time of separation. Love, Suzy
