Hold tight to all the wonderfull memories! We just lost a niece 7 yrs old and my other niece said it perfectly " We are a little bit sad a lot a bit happy But a little bit sad " Having the gospel in our lives brings so much comfort at times like these. "When doubts arise when tragedies strike, the quiet voice of faith is heard in the stillness of the night as certain and as reassuring as the polar star in the heavens above." President Gordon B Hinkley

I am so sorry for your loss. There will forever be an empty hole. Try and write down some memories right now-many many will come to you. then life comes back and you might forget them.

Jeni said...

You must have shared this picture of your dad before...because even though I never met him, when I think of him this is what I see. You can frame it and stitch a pillow of that one powerful sentence he wrote in that letter a few weeks ago to lay next to it.

I am so sorry for your loss. May God be with you all till you meet again.
