Dear, Cheryl, Lael, and Dale, Words cannot express the love that I felt for your father. I know I only knew him for a short time, but I felt like I had known him before. Maybe he is a kindred spirit of mine. I thought about your father every day and said many prayers for him and your family. My biggest regret is that I didn't see him again. Please KNOW that it wasn't because I didn't want to. I know without a doubt that he and your mom are in joyful bliss. He was a great man and I am sure your mom was an amazing woman. It bring me comfort and makes me smile to think of what they must be doing right now. I know this has been a hard and challenging year for all of you. I will keep you and your family in my prayers. Please don't hesitate to let me know if you need anything.With Love,Stephanie
