    Our deepest sympathy on the passing of your dad. We were neighbors for over 20 years to your mom and dad, and they were always very friendly, and helpful. There was a feeling of emptiness when your dad moved from the cul de sac. It seemed very strange knowing he was no longer living in his house.
    We hope you take peace in knowing your parents are once again joined together.
