"Just think about stepping on shore, and finding it heaven; of touching a hand, and finding it God's; of breathing the air, and finding it celestial; of waking up in glory, and finding it home."  
Rejoicing in the loving memories you had for your dad and grandfather. With joyful expectation, you can plan a heavenly family reunion. Love and prayers, Don and Jan Quinn

Dear Don:
I am sorry to hear of the passing of your Father. After losing my Dad this past summer, I now know that no matter what the time or circumstances, it is very difficult to be without that relationship.  Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and all your family, even across all the miles that separate us.
