It was very nice to see you and your sister,  It was a nice walk down memory lane. I felt there was so much to say but I couldn't get it out. Your father will be missed as you all are. 
Thanks for being a part of my life. Bob Gibbons

The loss of a parent is seemingly the natural order of life, however there feels nothing natural about this loss. If we believe in the creator then we know no matter how unnatural we feel about this sad event, there is hope, there is love. May your father rest in the comforts from which he came. Nuzzled deep in our fathers embrace. May you all find peace and comfort in the memories and love he has left behind.
