Sorry about your situation. At some time or other we all go through it. Doesn't make it any easier though.

Kevin,

Prayer has been lifted up.

I know that you are an independent sucker, but I'm only 90 minutes away, so, if you need anything call me. You've got my number.

Kevin - I can't say more than what the others have said. It is never easy to lose a loved one. We've all been there more times than we ever want to. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Kevin,

If there is a silver lining to this cloud, it is that as the years go by, you will know that your Dad is still with you. I lost mine in 1995, and yet he is still with me today. At times, others in the family will look at me strange and remark that I sounded or acted just like my father....I can tell from your relationship it will be the same for you. So sorry to hear that you are going through this, and hope to see you at a cubfest real soon.
