I know you are saddened to think of this reality and void.  Grieve as you must, not as others will tell you is right, wrong or indifferent.  Travel your pathways as there isn't just one but many.  May God bless you as each event ahead will be difficult, hold to His unchanging hand.

Read John 14:15 - 21

Jesus said, "I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. Before-long, the world will not see me anymore but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live. On that-day you will realize I am in my-Father, I am in you and you are in me. John 14:18 - 20 New-International version Even-though I was an adult when my parents died, I felt a keen-sense of what it was like to be an orphan. Gone were the two-people who had nurtured me and shaped my life. Sharp-grief gave way to bewilderment, "Who am I now; who knows me deeply yet loves me anyway? The gospel of John recounts Jesus telling His-disciples although the time is coming they would see Him no-more but He would always be a part of them just-as they would forever be a part of Him.
So it has been with my parents. I see now even-after their-deaths, their
example of loving-kindness continues to teach me and guide my-life. That goes deeper than just warm-memories. My parents are in me at a deep-level, deeper than the mind can comprehend and as-deep as the heart. Surely God was their-heart's teacher.
In the same-way I come to know God through the life and love of Jesus. Nurturing that-relationship through prayer, study, giving and serving keeps me forever-connected to the living-God.
Gracious-God, let who we are reflect who You are in all we do. Amen
Because of God's great-love for us, we are never-orphaned hard.

Dear Ones,
We are saddened for your loss.  We honor your Dad and the loving and wonderful legacy he has left.  You were so loving, giving, compassionate, kind and always there for your Dad in his life and as he leaves you now.  Loosing him leaves an emptiness.  May the Peace and Love of Jesus comfort you and fill the void in your life at this time.
With prayers and heartfelt sympathy,
