Carolyn, Herman, and Family,
What a wonderful life your father had, and now he has a greater life because he is resting in the Lord. We cannot tell you not to cry because tears, during a time like this, say I love you, I thank you, and I will miss your presence on earth, but the tears are also a time for rejoicing in the Lord because your loved one is present with the Lord. Cherish the memories and the love. The Lord, God will keep you while you go through this time of bereavement because "most of all you still have your faith", and it will sustain you.
