Dear Karen and Jack, This is so sudden and I know how devestated you must feel about loosing your father, and best friend. As you already know, you never get over loosing a parent, and in time you will dwell on only the good times, and that is the way it should be. Please know Kathleen and I feel your sorrow, and will pray for his soul.
