Donna and Doug,
I send prayers that God comforts and heals the pain you must feel in saying farewell to your father. Although this separation is temporary, the hurt stings.
I know that you both were strong.ministers to your dad and he must have felt such peace in your love for him. Being treasured by our children is a great gift that is irreplaceable.
May God bless and embrace you.
Love in Christ!
