    Janice, please know that we are both deeply saddened by the loss of your dad. I can’t imagine how difficult this must be for you, but be comforted by the fact that your parents are together again after a short separation, and I am sure they are watching over you. You are in our thoughts and prayers and we send you our love! If you ever need anything you know how to reach us.
