Dad, your pain and suffering is now over, may you rest in peace in Heaven with Mom. We all love and miss both of you. The family would like to thank Joan Truax for her lunchtime conversations with dad.
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can; and the wisdom to know the difference, living one day at a time, enjoying one moment at a time, accepting hardship as the pathway to peace. Amen
