Dad,
I miss you every single day. As today marks one week until Christmas Day, I can tell you that I am experiencing a new level of sadness over your departure. I know you are in a better place, but I still wish you were with us right now. I know it might be selfish, but it is how I feel. I love SOOO much!

Jim was a good friend though it has been many years since I had seen him, I moved from the Orlando area to Tallahassee eight years ago. I am so sorry that he has passed. I have fond memories of Jim and will be praying for his family.
