I am so sorry for the loss of your Father! I pray for your family to find comfort at this difficult time. It doesn't matter how old you get to be, you still need your Dad.
Be still and you will hear his voice, he is the wind gently tugging at your hair, He is the sun, the warmth on your cheek on a sunny day.
His memories live on thru your laughter.
Sending hugs to all-
