Regina, I was so sorry to hear of your Dad's passing in the newspaper. I hope he passed peacefully and didn't suffer. My thoughts are with you at this time of sadness - losing a parent is one of the hardest things to go through - Mom passed last November. My heart goes out to you and your family, and may your faith hold you strong.
