Twelve years ago, your dad helped me and my children plan the funeral of my late/their dad who committed suicide. I don't know how we would have gotten thru everything had it not been for your father.He was a rock that my children and I could lean on at that time. Please know that you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.
