Cheryl, we have been holding you close in prayer since we spoke with you on Friday. We were relieved to hear that your Dad did not pass while you were at work. Be comforted by happy memories and the fact that you have been a good daughter. He is home with your Mom now. Blessed repose and eternal memory.
