I'm so sorry to hear, Roberta, that your dad has passed away. There is nothing that I can say that will comfort your heart today but, in time your heart will heal and you'll remember all the good times you had with him. I want you to know that Carroll and I are praying for you and your family. If there is anything that Carroll or I can do for you and your family do not hesitate to ask. Our hearts go out to you.
