Steph, I was so sorry to hear just recently that your Dad had passed. I know you and J took care of him at the end and it wasn't easy...never is. You should be proud to have been a blessing when he needed you most. I am really sorry for the loss of your Dad. I am hoping that happy memories are a comfort. You will be in my prayers.
