He has simply gone on ahead to make a place for the rest of you when it's your turn to join him. You are a very special family and it was our privilege and pleasure to associate with you all those years ago in Denali Park. May "the peace that passes understanding" be with you all as you bid a very temporary farewell to your dad and husband. He remains near to you; it is only your temporal vision that says he is "gone". A favorite Mormon motto: Families Are Forever!
