Sandy, I was truly saddened to hear about your Dad. I know you loved him so much! The scriptures say there is a season and purpose for everything. It was his time to go and now he is with your Mom once again! Praise God! He lived a good long life and I know you wouldn't want him to suffer any more. Keeping you in prayer, Love, Deborah Sparks
