We’re so very sorry for your loss. Our family will keep your family in our thoughts and prayers.
Loved visiting you while I grew up.
When your only daughter passed away, I couldn’t think of any other way to honor you than to have you walk me down the aisle for my wedding, as my father was also deceased.
I will miss you
So sorry for your loss. Thoughts and prayers for the family.
God bless you and comfort you during the loss of your father/grandfather.
My heartfelt condolences to you and your family. I hope you can find comfort in the memories and celebration of your grandfather’s life.
