Debbie, it was a privilege and honor to meet your parents who so lovingly came to show their respect at my mother's funeral. It's hard to believe that your father has joined my parents and many of the loved ones who have gone before him. I am very sorry for your loss. I will keep you all in my prayers praying that you are able to draw strength from family and friends and from the beautiful memories you have of your dear father and husband. His spirit is very much alive and is with you and will remain with you until the day you join him. A big hug to you all. Corina
