Dear Julie, Mark and extended family. I was so saddened to hear of your mom's passing. You have had a lot of suffering over the course of your parents' health issues. They were two good people who should still be with us today. But I know you take comfort in knowing your dad was there to welcome the love of his life into their heavenly home. Their legacy is the lovely family you all have become. God bless.
