    I am so sorry to learn of the passing of your father. I hope in all of your pain you can find moments to celebrate and cherish his life in the moment to share together. I know how emotionally and physically challenging it is right now. Please take care of yourself and each other. No doubt your father is very proud of the amazing woman you are and all the virtues and values he shared that continues to live and thrive through you. My deepest condolences, Jenn
