    I watched my father leave this world yesterday afternoon at the hospital. He was a veteran of the Korean War, and a generous, giving spirit that will be missed by all who knew him. He had nearly reached the age of 79 years.

    Being his guardian and advocate for these past three years since losing my mother has been challenging at times. He was tough as nails and beat the odds on several occasions. I will miss him terribly.

    Sorry for your loss.

    When my little brother died I found comfort by not thinking about him being gone, but by remembering some of the things he did while he was alive. It did give me the feeling that we'd meet again when it's time.

    I would hope you are comforted by those around you and am so sad for you and anyone at such a time as this.

    No pretending to know the right words or sentiments as my own Father , the Reverand would have known how to say , but please take some comfort in knowing your freinds here and with you , mourn with you.

    I have always taken solace in the following, as it is as true as our own existance ;

    " In my Father's house are many Mansion's , if it were not so (true) , I would have told you ...."

    My family's deepest sympathy's to you and yours.
