Now that it has come, we miss you so so much. Thank you for all you (and Dad) have done for us. Your work on earth is done. We know that we must now carry on. Thanks to you, we can do so with our feet planted soundly on the ground. Yes, because of you, we have become the people we are. We cared for you as best as we could, as long as we could, now it is time for our Heavenly Father to hold and keep you until we can be reunited again. We will miss you and love always and will remember you fondly and know your with us as we carry on. Good bye.
