    Tony, Pam, Ricky, Cindy, and Johnny, I am so sorry for your loss. I loved him, too. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. The loss of a parent takes away something from your life that can never be replaced, their unconditional love for you. I know that loss and it’s an ache in your heart that never seems to go away. May you all find peace in the fact that he is at rest and in his maker’s arms. Though I can’t be there today, know I am there in spirit, and I love all of you.
