    Amy and Family:  So sorry for your loss of Father, Grandfather.  It is so hard to let them go but I am sure your Mother and Dad are catching up on all the things that they loved doing.  Rejoice that they are free of pain and all problems and hold tight to the memories that you had.  Rejoice that you were able to spend time with your Dad and that it can never take away from you.  You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

    God bless you all and hold you close in this time of sorrow.  Del was a good man who loved his family so much!  He will be missed.  Love you and keeping you in our thoughts and prayers.
