Dear Friends, Memories at this time will seem both a blessing and a curse. It’s hard not to laugh at the fun times without guilt. Your dad (and mom) raised a wonderful family. Healing takes lots of time. Lean on each other and remember everyone grieves differently. There is not easy way around this pain so one must walkStraight through it. Remember the best of times and take care of your mom. She needs you now more than ever. Thinking of you all and sending prayers for healing. Dad is with God now and that is a beautiful thing. Hugs❤️ߙϰߏ»Your friends Tami and Bup Wassum
