I'm so sorry for your loss Alex.  

I didn't know your father, but I know you... and that is all I need to know about the man.  I encourage you to take a long look in the mirror.  There lies your father's greatest achievement.    You will see him again my friend, but rest assured you will feel his presence as he continues to watch over you from above.  I will light a candle for him before Mass.

It is obvious that your Dad was a terrific man and father. He lived a long and wonderful life, with so many fond memories to cherish. So sorry to hear about his passing. It is always difficult to lose a parent. I lost both my Dad and my Mom a few years back.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.


So very sorry to hear about your Dad's passing, Alex.  Deepest sypathies to you and your family.  I lost my Dad 7 years ago and still find myself thinking about him nearly every day.

Once again my deepest and most sincere sympathy to you and your family

Hi Alex,

Thank you for sharing your dad's obituary--being as brief as it is, it couldn't possibly say it all but it says enough--what a lovely guy and lucky you for having a father like that! I am sorry for your loss and encouraged by his legacy.

Alex, As I am sure you well know, you have been fortunate and blessed to have had the privilege and joy of your father's company well into your adult years. My father died when I was ten, so anybody who has had his father in his life longer than that has my admiration, as well as my sincerest sympathy for your loss of him, now. You had a long time to love him. That will never stop, I am sure.

Very sincerely,
