A note from Dad

"To those I love and who love me, try not to grieve overlong. Remember that I live in you and through you. I have loved the world much more than I have not, and I have loved you most of all and always. No matter how the world goes, never lose or give up your determination to love as much of it and as many people as you can, and let my part of that love that resides in you reside forever.

I apologize for leaving you. I wanted to stay with you longer, much longer. But all is well with me and truly, all will be well with you. Now and then look up and you will feel my spirit in the blue or storm of the sky and among the stars, the door to the place we all came from and to which we shall return. In your moments of calm you will learn to feel yourself in my arms and in due time glimpse the peace and understanding that await you and in which I now live.

Thank you for being in my life. No other man has been as fortunate as I have been. I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you."
