    We are so sorry for your loss. I would have known who his parents were because he looks like his father with his mother’s beautiful eyes. We see he had his father’s talent with carpenter tools. How lucky his wife must feel to have him as a husband. How sad Pat and Penny must feel to have lost 2 children and his children to have had him for a father. We pray that you may find comfort that he was here on earth as long as he was, and that he is now with his sister. Again we are so sorry for your loss.
