    My Dear Christie, Almost a year has passed and I just found out about your Father’s passing. I send you my deepest sympathy. Your Dad was a friend of mine years ago. But He was someone that will never be forgotten by those who knew him. May You have peace alway’s in your heart, in knowing that your Dad is at home with our Lord. Your Dad will live in our heart’s and memories forever. And always know that he is watching over you from Heaven’s portals. And He will wait for you, just inside the Eastern Gates. May God Bless you,Christie
