Your dad meant a lot to me as did your mother. Rejoice that they have both been reunited in Heaven. Ed taught me how to fish and showed great patience with me. I will always remember that day. He meant a lot to my parents, too. They were always bragging about him and knowing him. I send my love to you, and pray that you will feel God's love surround you.
