    My deepest sympathies to you Veronica and your entire family. Know at this time your father is soaring with the angels! As sad as you feel, know that You're utmost in his thoughts and his love for all of you is so strong you will be able to feel it. Maybe not now, but you all will soon. Let peace be with you. God bless and keep you all.
