Sending you Prayers and may God bless you all.
Dear Elona – my heart goes out to you at this very sad time. It’s never easy to lose a loved one, but i hope it helps you to know that others share your grief and that your Dad is no longer in pain and suffering. It’s the people that are left behind who are suffering from the grief. Losing someone very precious makes us reflect and reassess just what we do have in our lives. It also makes us realize that life is just a loan and we never know what might be around the corner. It also makes us grateful for the time that our loved one was with us. Sending you and your family my deepest sympathy, my friendship and a virtual hug
Our sincere condolences to the whole family.
Frank, stay strong and forever remember the happy times.
Thinking of you,
Brian and Kate Heighington
