    Your Dad left such a legacy. Patient, tender, unconditionally loving, wise, and ready to help whatever the need. I’m so blessed that he called me “daughter” and allowed me to be a part of his life.

    I know you will miss him greatly, yet you are glad he is with Mom and the Lord Jesus. All our memories will survive and therefore he will never leave us.
