Linda, you have my condolence in the passing of your Father. I salute him and his sacrifice to our Country. Another of our comrades-in-arms has passed but he does so in joining those whom have passed before him and whom love him, especially your Mother. He fought the good faith and has earned eternal peace and joy in the presence of God. To you and your Family: The LORD bless you and keep you: The LORD make his face shine upon you, and be gracious to you: The LORD lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace. Love you all, Carol and David Holbrook

I am sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in the memories you cherish. Also, may Jehovah God give you comfort. 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4. Examining what the Bible teaches about the true condition of those who have died and the hope of the resurrection can bring you comfort too. Ecclesiastes 9:5; Acts 24:15.
