Debby and Lori, My heart goes out to both of you as have my prayers for these many weeks. The loss of a parent is always so hard, the loss of the second parent is even worse no matter your age. I know Holy Week will have a new meaning for you both. Know that your father is free of pain and with our Lord. He is Risen!
