    I’m so very sorry for the loss.
    I graduated with your dad from Griffith in 1961, but only became a friend of his within the last few years. I know he has been very ill but was always open for a conversation. He loved his family very much. My prayers are with you all.

I will always cherish the last 4 months that I got to have with you. May you be at rest now. I love you so very much and will always carry you in my heart. Love your Daughter
