Debbie, Cathy and Becky,
My thoughts are with you at this unhappy time. I hope the harsh news of David’s death will soon pass away to your fondest memories of him as a father. I can easily remember back to my youth and visiting you all as toddlers in your bustling house. He always seemed filled with pride when telling stories of each of you as he watched you grow. You were the light of his life. I hope that prideful truth provides you with some solace at this time.
Dad, we will miss you. We will miss the person you were and the person we never got to know. I hope that you are peaceful now and have shrugged off the demons that kept you from fully living and from allowing yourself to love others. I see parts of you in your grandchildren. Please know that I love you very much.
