    You have been in my thoughts and prayers ever since I heard of your dad's death. I know as Christmas approaches, his presence will be missed very much and your mom's, too They would want you to get together and share the stories and traditions that were a part if your family, and the food, too! Laugh together, connect with each other, sometimes for no reason in particular.You probably checked in with your dad, and asked him how the others were, but now reach out to each orher.You will see how much more precious you will be to each other. May you feel the forever love of your parents with you always!
