It’s hard to know just the right words to say. My husband lost his father, and it came sooner than it should have. I am incredibly thankful for being able to have met him and know that his memory will be ever present in our home. My heart is with his family and friends as I know the pain will always be there. We just learn to live around it with the love we have. ❤
