    Dear Bev and your family
    I remember your Dad as such a friendly and warm man and when I saw his picture that is exactly how I had remembered him. Your heart must be so heavy but the photo is full of good memories. Hang onto the memories they will buy you time to heal.
    Thinking of you, love
